Ta Prohm - Dripping with trees

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by alan_nesbit on March 7, 2006

This is well known for the way in which it has been left relatively unrestored. I know the trees grow upwards, but they appear to drip over the walls like treacle, with branches filling cracks and forcing the stones apart. It’s easy to imagine the temple being by the overgrown, submerged, and slowly town apart by the luxuriant growth of the jungle.

Just because there are no tourists in the photos, don’t make the mistake of thinking that we had the place to ourselves. This is a popular temple, and rightly so.
