Away from the main temple complexes flocked with tourists is another temple flocked with tourists: Ta Prohm. The temple, which goes by the name “Tombraider Temple” (because of the movie filmed there) is actually one of my favorites from the trip. I enjoyed the experience being there because of the massive overgrowth that has taken place. I’ve never seen anything like it before–huge root systems have decimated and conceal much of the actual temple ruins. Of course, like all the other temple experiences, the heat makes you so crazy that it’s hard to even think. Maybe this is why preservation work is so minimal?
