Ta Prohm Temple, Cambodia

 

Part of the huge temple complex that is Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm is one of the most visited places, a beautiful temple, bound by massive roots of huge trees. It’s enchanting, ancient, eerie and peaceful all at the same time.

Made famous by Angelina Jolie in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Ta Prohm quickly was added to many intrepid traveller’s ‘to do’ list. In the late nineteenth century Ta Prohm was discovered by French archaeologists. They decided not to conduct a  restoration of the temple  due to the fact that giant trees were so merged with ancient walls that eventually they became whole.
