Founded at the turn of the 13th century by Khmer emperor Jayavarman VII, Ta Prohm remains untouched and well preserved, largely owing to its status as a World Heritage Site. The temple, first established as a Buddhist monastery and university, stood abandoned for centuries, during which silk-cotton trees and strangler figs pushed out of its foundations and grew upward, burying the stone buildings in tangles of exposed roots. The ruins include hundreds of statues to various gods, former monks' residences, and stone towers, all intertwined with tree roots in an unforgettable visual effect. Parts of the trails that run through the temple are dark or impassable; use a map or follow a guide to stay on track.

  • This was the most amazing temple complex in the Siem reap temple sites. Absolutely fascinating from the 600 year old trees and their fantastic root systems to the intricate carvings in the temple walls. This is where part of where the first tomb raider was filmed. If you have to choose only one temple to visit in Cambodia, this is it. A must see.
  • Astonishing temple. Honestly i liked this one the most because od the synergy with nature. It's full of huge trees that are all over the walls. Must see during your Angkor watt tour. I didn't go with a guide and explored the place on my own, still was very nice experience
