Create an itinerary including Ta Prohm
Founded at the turn of the 13th century by Khmer emperor Jayavarman VII, Ta Prohm remains untouched and well preserved, largely owing to its status as a World Heritage Site. The temple, first established as a Buddhist monastery and university, stood abandoned for centuries, during which silk-cotton trees and strangler figs pushed out of its foundations and grew upward, burying the stone buildings in tangles of exposed roots. The ruins include hundreds of statues to various gods, former monks' residences, and stone towers, all intertwined with tree roots in an unforgettable visual effect. Parts of the trails that run through the temple are dark or impassable; use a map or follow a guide to stay on track.

  • Never heard of this place before the day we visited it. The natural beauty of the area is amazing. Once the buildings started to decay, nature took over and it is just breathtaking to see.

  • Nice place .... Talks a lot about Cambodian history
  • Very clean and in good shape. Looks like the really nice owner cares about everything in a really proper manner. Proper glasses available, plastic cups if you need. Worth a visit if you come from the nearby temple and need a rest.
  • The trees in this temple are incredible and majestic! They take your breath away by the sheer size of them. This temple is in much the same condition in which it was found and the trees have spread their gigantic roots everywhere and become part of the structure. This temple was used as a location in the film Tomb Raider.
  • I recommend coming here first thing in the morning to be one of the first and only visitors. The atmosphere is amazing when it's just you, ruins, trees and sounds of wild animals (and maybe a couple of others tourists who you don't even need to see).
  • My favorite after the Bayon Temple, actually maybe it’s tied for first. The trees climbing on the walls make this place so special. Definitely watch the Tomb Rider scene after to have a good laugh and feel like Lara Croft. I went just before the close (5:30pm) and the lights were pretty cool
