  A Temple at Ta Prohm
by Jmill42

You might take a look at Angkor Wat and the Bayon, and think, "What the hell happened to Ta Prohm?" Well, what you are seeing is exactly what the discoverers wanted. They decided to leave Ta Prohm untouched. It is therefore the closest representation of what most of the temples of Angkor looked like when they were found. The jungle that swallowed the rest of the temples continues to do so at Ta Prohm, even today. There are those who want to cut away the vines to help preserve the temple. For me, I would hate to see the temple completely destroyed, but I would hate worse to lose what only Ta Prohm offers, a glimpse into the past.
