Ta Prohm……

Tempting though it might be I have resisted the opportunity to show the iconic tree taking over this famous Cambodian Temple, instead showing a more modest tree standing in front of part of the perimeter wall. Ta Prohm is remarkable amongst the remarkable Khmer site for having been left to the clutches of the verdant jungle. It dates from 1186 and because of the encroaching forest you feel very much like Indiana Jones or Lara Croft (which was filmed here) when you negotiate this atmospheric temple site.
