Ancient Tree Roots

Ta Prohm, part of the Angkor temple complex, is one of the most popular temples with tourists. The temple was left mostly uncleared of trees and other signs of time, so the century old trees soar high into the sky and oftentimes took root right over and along various walls. (Most of the other temples were cleared of overgrown trees to allow easy access for tourists.)

The temples near Siem Reap, Cambodia are a history fan’s heaven, and as a result of leaving the trees alone to show their age, Ta Prohm may be the highlight of any trip to the Angkorian temples.
