This is a simply spectacular place. It lies between the Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. It was originally a Buddhist monastery built around the late 12th early 13th centuries. Now, its simply a stunning place. The mixture of nature and stone is surreal, to be able to be in the middle of that is a once in a lifetime opportunity.... More

This Temple is perhaps one of the best in all of Angkor Wat with some of the best photos you will take next to Angkor Wat Proper. Go here first for some great morning shots!

I loved this temple even though it is more damaged than the other larger temples in Siem Reap. There were no crowds while we were visiting and the area is just beautiful.

pictures don't do justice. Must see in person. Bring bugspray. Seeing this place was like being in a movie set.

Ta Prohm is the epitome of "power of the jungle" because it's swallowed by trees! This temple is mostly a reminder of how the temples looked when Europeans discovered them. The movie Tomb Raider shed light on this temple. Even if you only have one day to explore temples, this is a MUST SEE.

I loved Ta Prohm. We went when there was no one there. It was an amazing experience. Each corner was a wonderful new adventure.

We had to bribe our way in at 5:10 (it closes at 5:30) because a police guard wanted to go home early. It was funny, and we had the place to ourself and took very nice photos. It is an amazing place. Must see

The "Tomb Raider" place as they called it. Being here and seeing all the places where the movie was made was amazing. Tons of restoration work are in place, while the danger of the trees and the temple itself coming down sooner or later is surely increasing with the amount of crowd it attracts everyday. Restoration works must continue on... More

A mixture of nature and culture. The big tress of the tropical jungle having conquered the remains of an ancient khmer temple. Unforgettable!
