Ta Prohm is a Buddhist temple constructed in the mid 12th to early 13th centuries. It was one of Jayavarman VII's first large temple projects and was dedicated to his mother. Most people today recognise it as the 'Tomb Raider' temple.
It is a wonderful place to take photographs, although there have been a number of wooden walkways added (apparently only recently), which do detract a bit...necessary though if the place is to survive.
The jungle is both a blessing and a curse here. The trees weaving in and about the structures are at once holding it together and pushing it apart. Everywhere you look are fallen (and stacked) blocks of stone, and a lot of the place is propped up with poles etc. I must say...I did have some nervous moments watching my little fella clambering about the place! he had an absolute ball by the way...a kiddies dream!
