#488 Ta Prohm and Bayon

While we are in the neighborhood of Angkor Wat, we visit two other temples: Ta Prohm and Bayon.

Ta Prohm is a popular tourist destination because the temple has not been restored.  A jungle surrounds the temple and trees are growing out of the ruins.  Did you see Lara Croft: Tomb Raider?  It was filmed here at Ta Prohm. 

We are amazed at the struggle between temple and jungle.  To see more photos, click on the link to 'See all our photos' and select our Cambodia photo set.

  1. We were blown away by these Cambodian sites despite the extreme heat, humidity, and foolishness of one of our students....Glad you got to see them.
    Miss you both....
