Ta Prohm

 

The great temple of Ta Phrom was constructed by Jayavarman VII in 1186.

French archeologists left Ta Prohm to the elements, the flora adds an element of mystery to the ruins ; "The tree roots flow over the roofs, tumbling in all directions like a flow of lava, sometimes breaking the stones apart, sometimes holding them together."
