Ta Prohm

We continued our amazing exploration of the Angkor sites after visiting Angkor Wat earlier in the day, including Ta Prohm for example (a location for the 2001 movie Lara Croft: Tomb Raider with Angelina Jolie) which struggles to escape a relentless jungle embrace.

Bits of rubble

Nature's overgrowth and destruction

Larger than life

Strolling through time

Ta Prohm has mostly been left to nature, but now the experts are trying to preserve it as nature is becoming too destructive to the temples.
