Awesome - but busy

One of the main temples to go to at Angkor Wat but thanks to Angelina Jolie and Tomb Raider its very busy - try and get there early. Well worth it though.

You should go there very early, before sunrise, to watch the first sun rays ingnite this special temple in golden color. Unfortunately it was a little cloudy/hazy and no gold color was observed. But the power of nature, with the trees entangles within the bricks and stone towers is very unusual and has its own charm. Great restoration and preservation... More

Unbelievable sight - I thought you only see these in the movies - where the jungle was left untouched to wrap around temples and structures. I could spend the whole day here and marvel at nature combining with man's intricate handiwork. While it is apparent that this site has been neglected and abandoned in the past, it is still amazing... More

The place where they shot tomb raider if you don't know! Its a lovely place filled with history and culture, apart from the angkor wat and the bayon temple of course.

Awesome!!! Nature overtaking stone..its really something. Giant trees and roots submerging parts of an ancient temple...one has to cross slightly precarious bridges and fallen stones, to get to it, but its totally worth it. Yes there are a lot of tourists, but , it does not detract from the experience. There is a statue of one of the Apsaras ,divine... More

All the tree roots climbing through the stones of this temple are really amazing. A pity about all the tourists though! We were there in the afternoon and you could hardly move. Very difficult to get any photos. Worth trying to see something of it though.

Try to get here early 8:30, before the tour buses arrive. There is now a fixed walkway to get around the temple complex without climbing on the stonework itself. Very atmospheric when not crowded. The trees still embedded in the structure are great for photographs, but they are still damaging the infrastructure more and more each year

I've never seen any place like it. It's amazing to see all the trees grow out of the temple that was once abandoned. I love to look at different shape of trees which are very unique as they try to grow from the most unusual place. I went there about lunch time so there were not as many tourists as... More

This is where the trees are intertwined among the ruins. We really enjoyed seeing nature reclaiming this temple. This was the temple chosen to be left in its natural state, and they have done much work to prop up the ruins while letting the tree roots show their strength. Strangler figs and silk-cotton trees are wedging roots into the masonry... More
