Definitely worth a visit. Other than being known as the "Tomb Raider" temple, these ruins are uniquely spectacular for its interplay with nature. All around the temple, massive stone walls intertwine with gnarled, monstrous trees in a fantastical and awe-inspiring way. Definitely put this on your list. A good way to see this is to hire a guide for a... More

When you think Angkor and you you this picture, just bear in mind that Ta Prohm is the last temple in the Angkor Tom complex that is still shown with the trees who grew in it since the temple complex was abandoned at the end of the Khmer dynasty. A must see.

Just as we envisaged these ruins would look like... Indiana Jones stuff!!.. Mystic and ancient; all the other shrines pale into insignificance, when compared to this experience. Your camera will get a real workout here , as it is impossible to stop clicking away, cause every corner of the place reveals new surprises. If you miss this one on your... More

Of all the temples in the Angkor zone this is the most gob-smacking. Ancient trees intertwined with rock walls and stone temples that seem to rise from the jungle everywhere. When it offers a long or a short tour option, take the long. You will not regret.

By far the most popular temple other than Angkor Wat namely because the film Tomb Raider was mostly shot here and also features the carving of a stegosaurus made famous on the History Channel series Ancient Aliens. Still, not everyone notices the dinosaur unless you're looking for it so keep your eye out when you walk into the courtyard where... More

This is one of the three main sites around Siem Reap, along with Angkor Wat and Bayon, which is essentially part of the larger Angkor Thom complex. Many of the other temples are worth a visit too but one should budget time to allow for spending a little more at these three places. I wouldn't even consider spending less than... More

Amazing to see a combination of manmade history taken over by the nature. It is awesome and you never the forces of nature after seeing this. Your own life will seem insignificant when you see this in totality

scammers here too. refuse when a local tries to talk history. they will show you a piece of paper afterwards that you need to pay them $20 - $100 for the "tour" that they gave.

Another must see of the Angkor Complex. Amazing seeing the trees intertwined into the Temple - makes for fun photos and fun exploring.

Simply a magical place. Almost spirituel. It's quite heavy on tourists now a days, so get here early. I wouldn't say that exactly this place is the most amazing place, but Ta Prohm must be experienced as part of visiting Angkor.
