Ta Prohm is one of the largest and most sacred Angkor temples, built by King Jayavarman VII in the late 12th century.

Ta Prohm Attractions

You’ll find the Buddhist style rather prominent behind this temple’s architecture. Down the lane of history, many a Buddha statue was destroyed to be replaced by Shiva Linga (a Hindu religious icon). From the jungle growth all around it and the giant tree roots growing here and there, sometimes through the very stonework, this now-abandoned temple ruin is unexpectedly beautiful, not to mention ominous.
