Ta Prohm – the jungle temple in Cambodia
Ta Prohm is by far my favorite temple of Angkor, in Cambodia- invaded by jungle, it has a mystical atmosphere and the big, strong roots embrace the walls giving the impression that the tall trees grew from the ruins! It’s like a real adventure game, expecting for hidden doors to open behind the roots and lianas.
This temple built in the late 12th century and abandoned in the 17th century, is one of the most popular temples at Angkor.
Scenes from the movie “Tomb Raider” (starring Angelina Jolie) were filmed here at Ta Prohm Temple.
Dintre toate templele din Angkor in Cambodgia, Ta Prohm este preferatul meu – este invaluit in atmosfera misterioasa a junglei, iar radacinile copacilor uriasi inconjoara zidurile templului si parca au crescut direct din ruine! M-am simtit ca intr-un joc de aventura, asteptand dintr-un moment in altul sa se deschida vreo usa ascunsa printre liane si radacini.
Construit la sfarsitul sec. XII si abandonat in sec. XVII, Ta Prohm este unul din cele mai vizitate si fotografiate temple din Angkor.
P.S. Aici au fost filmate scene din filmul “Tomb Raider“, cu Angelina Jolie.
I didn’t pay much attention to details of this temple while I was there last year. Your post really opened my eyes on what I’ve missed. Thank you 🙂
