Us at Ta Prohm, Siem Reap


My favorite temples are the ones overrun by trees, and the "Tomb Raider temple" (more properly known at Ta Prohm) is justly famed for this. It was built by a 12th century king, Jayavarman VII, to honor his mother, and the over-exuberance of greenery was even better at his other family temples....but more on those later.
