Ta Prohm is another large temple built during the Khmer empire. The outside walls measure 1000m by 600m and when visiting, your driver will drop you off at one entrance and then collect you at the other end, allowing you to walk right through the whole temple complex. Today, Ta Prohm is slowly being reclaimed by surrounding jungle, with large areas of the complex now in ruins. The temple is famous for the large trees that have grown over decades amongst the remaining buildings and they are a sight to behold. Ta Prohm’s popularity has grown in recent years due to its appearance in the movie Lara Croft - Tomb Raider, starring Angelina Jolie. Ta Prohm is a fantastic spot for photographs although be careful amongst the ruins as tourists have suffered injures in the past. The complex can also provide welcome relief from the hot sun, due to the large number of trees. (Photo Credit: Daniel Lienert, unsplash.com)
