Part of your temple tours in Siem Reap must include Ta Prohm. This is the temple with the huge tree growing down the side of it and the location for the Angelina Jolie film "Tomb Raider". Really spectacular. Don't miss it.

It was my second time in Angkor, but unfortunately I have discovered Ta Prohm only for the first time. And it is definitely worth going there only to see this place. So, if you have limited time - Ta Prohm is the place to go in Angkor!

It's my No. 1 favorite temple! There's a major restoration at the temple. Simply amazed with the giant, famous tree's root is curling around the temple just like it's part of the temple's structure. It's really beautiful and stunning. Despite the warm weather, it's actually very cooling in the temple due to the tall trees surrounding the temple.

Ta Phrom is also known as the Tomb Raider site and showcases the most number of trees-in-temple combos. Good for photo ops! But they made pathways and platforms through the major tree-temple combos. For me, this strips the place of that "old temple charm". Too bad.

Everyone really wants to see the "tomb raider" temple and it shows. It is impressive and the trees growing around the temple. It's almost a little too touristy. They have built up platforms to pose for photos by the larger trees and people line up to have their photo taken. Worth the trip.

Visiting the Ta Prohm is a must see when you visit the Temples of Angkor Wat and was one of the best. Seeing all the trees growing among the Temple was an amazing example of how nature can come back.

Those huge trees are incredible! I have never seen anything like that before! How the tree slowly taking over the temple is beyond word! Sadly to see many areas in this temple already collapsed!

If you're willing to get up before the sun, this is the temple you would want to visit. We got up at 5:30 am and there were only about 8-10 other people in the temple with us. WELL WORTH IT!. We got to take pictures without hundreds of people swarming in the background. :)

The structure of the tree branch covering the temple is so nice to see. Is considered the best small temple that we've seen besides Ang Kor Wat.

Visiting this temple made us realize how powerful nature is and that everything belongs to it. It was magical to see all those old parts of buildings "eaten" by tree. This one though was most difficult to get around with many uneven steps and since it was raining it was very slippery.
