Founded at the turn of the 13th century by Khmer emperor Jayavarman VII, Ta Prohm remains untouched and well preserved, largely owing to its status as a World Heritage Site. The temple, first established as a Buddhist monastery and university, stood abandoned for centuries, during which silk-cotton trees and strangler figs pushed out of its foundations and grew upward, burying the stone buildings in tangles of exposed roots. The ruins include hundreds of statues to various gods, former monks' residences, and stone towers, all intertwined with tree roots in an unforgettable visual effect. Parts of the trails that run through the temple are dark or impassable; use a map or follow a guide to stay on track.

  • Nice place .... Talks a lot about Cambodian history
  • Very clean and in good shape. Looks like the really nice owner cares about everything in a really proper manner. Proper glasses available, plastic cups if you need. Worth a visit if you come from the nearby temple and need a rest.
