"Tomb Raider" Ta Prohm Temple
Siem Reap, Cambodia
Enjoy a visit to the impressive Ta Prohm Temple, built by Jayavarman VII as a shrine for his mother and as a monastery devoted to its upkeep. A stele referred to the temple as a monument "whose limbs are adorned with gold and resplendent with gems". Please note: a ten year restoration project is currently underway at Ta Prohm, and, as such, construction vehicles, workers and scaffolding may be present at some parts of the temple.
