  Carving of Devatas
by Aidy_p

Like other temples, the walls of Ta Prohm are adorned with various carvings - Devatas, Apsaras and Animals. One interesting animal, if you can find on the wall, is a carving of a stegosaur. With this, questions are abound. Were there stegosaurus during the time of the carving somewhere around the 12th and 13th century? Were there other animals that are thought to be extinct, still in existence today? Look out in your local dailies. The news might just come your way sooner rather than later.

Anyway, do ask your guide where you can find that carving.
