One of the most popular temples in Angkor is Ta Prohm, also known as the Jungle Temple. Ta Prohm was built for Jayvarman VII in the mid 12th to early 13th centuries. Its modern-day fame spread by it?s inclusion the recent ?Tomb Raider? movies starring Angelina Jolie, because of which this temple is always high on any tourist list and is therefore crowded most of the day. I highly recommend visiting this site first thing in the morning if you?re looking to avoid the crowds. Since most people visit legendary Angkor Wat for sunrise Ta Prohm is generally quiet then. Our second day in Angkor we visited Ta Prohm second, after sunrise at Sras Srang and a quick trip to Banteay Kdei, allowing us to explore this breathtaking site in relative calm.

Directions: West of Banteay Kdei on the Small Tour Circuit
