Ta Prohm Temple is much more intimate than Angkor Wat and most of the temple has remained relatively unchanged as it was when it was refound after 400 odd years.

Some beautiful big trees have covered parts of the temple and makes for great photography.

This is one of the most picturesque tree temples in the Angkor complex. This was built by King Jayavarman VII in honour of Prajnaparamita (the goddess of wisdom of Mahayana Buddhism). He dedicated this temple to his mother. Very old and long trees are in this complex. Renovation work is going on.

A must go! It is really beautiful and unique. I loved this more than Angkor Wat. Go earl yin the morning to enjoy fresher temperature and less crowd.

Ta Prohm is a small but popular temple. It lay swallowed by the jungle for centuries, and has been left largely in the same condition as it was found. Giant trees snake their roots over its walls, slowly tearing on the ancient structures. There is some restoration work going on, but don't let that get in your way. There are also hoards of tourists. Still, it is possible to find small secluded spots where you can find amazing photo opportunities. So strap on some combat boots and pretend you are Lara Croft for a half hour or so. You'll be glad you went. It's a mesmerizing place.

Amazing site where nature has long since begun to reclaim the temple. The site itself has some fascinating areas. Much of it is in ruins, and there are massive trees that have taken over. An excellent site for pictures. When coming here, you can say either the Temple's name or simply "Tomb Raider" as the site has gained considerable fame after appearing in different films.

When entering, you'll see signs to take the "Long Walk" or the "Short Walk". There isn't a difference other than the long walk takes you all the way around the site and then back into where the short walk patrons are exiting. The Short Walk is better. There isn't really too much of interest to see on the Long Walk. Both take you by the areas where trees have taken over, but the Long Walk makes it longer than necessary.

Note, site is not friendly to wheelchairs or strollers. Bring water, sunscreen, hat, etc.. Better to wear tennis shoes/hiking shoes instead of sandals as the direct/soil will turn your feet a different color. Once you're past the ticket checkers, there are no bathroom facilities or refreshments available until you exit the site. Bathroom facilities and refreshments are only available prior to the entrance/after exiting on either side of the site.
