If you want to see the jungle invading the stone structures and feel how it must feel to live in this climate, I strongly recommend this temple.

I first visited here in January 2008 in the midst of their latest restoration. It was enchanting. Since then, the trees are taking their toll and much of the temple is now under scaffolding and restoration. It's still a cool place to visit.

Entered via West gate and exited via South. Our guide explained history, carvings and layout. Interesting how locals left the temple and let the trees grow (he explained that folk considered the temple bad luck). Could have used some better information boards as you can walk past some key carvings/areas without noticing.

Love this temple complex. Worth heading into the middle to explore all the partially collapsed tunnels and hidden courtyards. The famous trees are popular and busy, but there is lots more to explore.

I had the first hand experience of seeing what happened when nature decides to take over a man made temple that has been deserted for decades. The trees literally engulfed the temple. Some trees are seen as providing shelter for the temple, but some trees are seen as slowly destroying the temple with its strong roots. Its a work of... More
