Ta Prohm: the Jungle Temple

Half Day Any Time Evening Morning Culture
It is easy to understand why Ta Prohm is considered the most-photographed temple in the Angkor Wat complex. Initially obscured from view by a short walk through the forest, this is the famous temple where nature appears to be taking over the structure itself. Immense trees and vines wrap themselves around the ruins, providing stunning portraits and endless moments of fascination. Built by King Jayavarman VII between the late 12th and early 13th centuries, this site was once a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university, thought to have regularly served 80,000 people. Unexplored by archaeologists until relatively recently, Ta Prohm is now preserved as a quintessential example of how ancient architecture and nature coexist.
