This temple is where some of the the Lara Croft Tomb Raider film was shot. That automatically means that it will be busy as it's on everyone's list as a 'must see'. It is a must see! The forest is reclaiming its land and has been allowed to do so. Tree roots breaking through the temples is an amazing thing... More

Very beatutiful! Not too busy when we went at noon. When you stand near the tree roots you get a real idea of their scale. There are certain places that you have to line up to take photos, like the famous tree from Tomb Rider, but it takes a few minutes. It is one of the main temples and is... More

Our hotel had a DVD of Tomb Raider, which we had seen years ago, so we watched the relevant part prior to our visit to Ta Prohm. Easy to see why they picked it as a location as it is very atmospheric. Not as impressive as Ankor Wat or Bayon, both of which have been extensively restored, it does give... More

The trees gave the temple a very different feel. It is well worth going even if you're feeling 'templed out' as it is quite something else.

We visited early in the morning before sunrise and had the same experience as some reviewers below,- a quiet place amongst the large trees and just a few other visitors. We really enjoyed to slowly walk around and in the various buildings. There are lots of stones scattered around but the place is still under extensive conservation and restoration. This... More

Deep in the forest you will find the ancient temple of Ta Prohm. The atmosphere is mystical, you can almost feel the spirit of higher power all around. Go early in the morning; less crowd and the light for photos are perfect.

This temple is famous for a fairly modern reason – it’s where Tomb Raider was filmed and the locals are quite proud of that. It’s a very impressive temple with that mix of man and nature as the trees are slowly taking over the temple. The trees are not being touched and won’t be removed unless they die. The roots... More

This is one of our favorite temples as it has a cooler atmosphere with massive trees that sprung and cloaked the temple and it's ruins. It's like being one with the jungle. You also get to thoroughly enjoy the temple as it is not that crowded.

After the previous days trip to Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat we were collected at 5.30am to visit Ta Prohm before sun up! There was NO-ONE there but us and we explored at leisure with great photos in differing light. I'm sure you know that Tomb Raider was filmed here. We had a small packed breakfast watching the sun come... More

The photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor's most popular temples with visitors = expect a lot of tourist looking for Lara Croft feeling.
