Owner description: Having undergone minimal restoration, stone pillars and carvings intertwine with massive tree roots and jungle in this stunning temple complex.

Very interesting due to the march of nature,tree roots slowly finding there way through the walls of the temple.

As usual,very busy,I think for photos,afternoon is a better time,take alook up though at some of the trees,& you will also see several bees nests attached to the branches.

Forget the films and just absorb the atmosphere.

If you possibly can, get here very early before the crowds and you will be rewarded by a fascinating ruin of a temple, with lots of nooks and crannies, which is really enchanting with all the trees and their roots intertwined in the structure. However once the crowds arrive it loses some of its magic, and although still interesting and worthy of a visit it does not have the same impact.

It is not one of the most interesting structures as a temple, but it is the combination of the romantic ruins and the effects of nature on it which provide the allure. If visiting the temples complex this one must be on the list.

The huge trees growing over and around the temple and walls are really amazing and worth many photos. Best light for the iconic photo is in the afternoon.

The time i went to this place is afternoon and packed with groups of tourists. Would suggest to go earlier. As most of you know this is the temple where tomb raider shooting takes place.

Fascinating visit . We went at dawn and it was so atmospheric. Tomb Raider was filmed here so you ladies can pretend you are Angelique Jolie lol. The combination of stone and trees is so unique. Each brought 63 kilometres by elephants. Tis is the only temple where they have left the trees. You do need to be sure footed as its uneven terrain and slabs but an amazing and unforgettable experience
