I visited this temple with a tour group when travelling South East Asia. It was without a doubt my favourite temple I visited. It is incredible to see the trees that have grown through the temple, and how nature has not been damaged for the sake of this temple. Simply restoring the temple around nature makes it that all a...

I love this temple site as its overgrown with massive tree roots. They wrap around the old stone ruins. I previously visited 5 years ago and it has changed. Areas have been cleaned up. I liked it better before but I guess they cant let the jungle take it over.

Quite awesome. The temple ruins made famous by the movie Tomb Raider is a must see for visitors to Siem Reap. Spectacularly overgrown by the jungle it offers many amazing sights. Go there!

Although this Temple is not as popular as Angkor Wat, it's less crowded and pretty spectacular. It's set in the jungle and the trees have surrounded the temple walls and rooftops in places with their roots. The carvings are still beautiful and so is the architecture. There's plenty to see and photograph. It's also the location used in "Tomb Raider"... More

Ta Prohm temple is well-known for it's trees overgrowing the walls and temple constructions. It gives a very good idea of how the other temples at the Angkor site must have looked when they were rediscovered in the jungle. It is also known as being the film set for the Lara Croft movie with Angelina. Too bad Angelina wasn't there... More

You just have to see it. The trees and the surroundings makes the temple absolutely unique! Hire a Guide in advance, worth every penny. Many backpackers go without and all the tempels just look like a pile of stones to them.

The reason that this was my favourite is because I am fascinated at the way nature reclaims and this is the biggest example I have seen of this. The trees have totally taken over and cannot be removed as they have become part of the structure. I loved it.

Just visited Siem Reap and the Angkor temples - this temple was a real surprise with massive trees clinging to the temple and towering up. Whilst mainly in ruin I can see why the first Tomb Raider movie used this temple it has a real charm and mystic appeal. If you like photography you should visit this temple so many... More

Beautiful set amoungst the trees. Very photogentic. Not too hard to walk around, I had jandels on and didnt have a problem. A walk around the exterior will also give you some beautiful photos. Monkeys were sitting on the roof and showed little response to humans.

You don't have this where you live, so go see it. You'll never see anything like it again. You feel like you're in a different world. Don't miss it. It's amazing. There. Believe me???
