Jungle-enveloped Ta Prohm is one of the most atmospheric of all temples in Angkor and sister site of Preah Khan. Once home to 2,740 monks, Ta Prohm looks much as it did in the early 1850's when this crumbling site was "rediscovered".

If you have seen the movie Tomb Raider you have seen this temple. It was my favorite temple in Siem Reap. The trees and the stone combine to make a super unique temple unlike anything you have ever seen.

In my opinion this is the best of all the temples. This one is famed for being the site of filming for Tomb Raider, but this is not what makes it special. As you'll see in the thousands of photos, it's the huge trees consuming large portions of the temple and tearing it slowly apart that really create the truly... More

This temple made me feel like Laura Croft haha it was all these hallways and pathways between huge trees and vine covered stone walls... it was really cool! I recommend at least 2 hours there. And go early while all the tourists are at Angkor Wat!!

This temple is now under reconstruction,and India is helping it. There is no drinking water facility. Walk only in the arrow direction shown there.Or else,you will reach opposite end from where you have to pay two dollars to reach your parked vehicle.

This is the temple where Laura Croft, Tomb Raider was filmed. It is largely unexcavated, and the tree roots have invaded in many areas, adding to the mystery of the place. It may not be the most exciting architecturally, but it is well worth a visit. We went at dawn. The light was incredible, and there were very few people... More
