About Ta Prohm in Siem Reap

The ancient temple of Ta Prohm built by the Khmer king Jayavarman VII in the early 13th century is built in Bayon style of architecture. The Ta Prohm temple was built to serve as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and University and is one of the most visited sites in the Angkor complex. The overgrown trees have become one with the foundations of the temple giving it a very picturesque look. The temple is the subject of the partnership project between an archaeological survey of India and APSARA to preserve and restore the Ta Prohm temple. These authorities have done extensive work to preserve the temple in the same condition it was found in and undertake systematic restoration.

The Ta Prohm temple was left in very much the same state it was discovered due to an extensive tree and plantation growth in the temple structures giving it a natural feel of being one with nature itself. Given the world heritage status in 1992, the temple is also the site for the filming of the famous Tomb Raider movie and the overgrown trees have been an enticing attraction to the tourists because of the photogenic nature of this temple.

The temple was abandoned after the fall of the Khmer empire, and this ‘flat’ temple has been in existence that made its own place in the whole complex. Through centuries of facing neglect, the temple has itself become a part of the jungle and yet, has not completely merged in the jungle. The plants and trees have claimed and become part of the majority of the structures, and this adds to the appeal of the temple. After the temple was rediscovered, it was decided to leave the temple as it is due to the picturesque setting and not knowing what effects will remove the trees will have on the structure of the temple itself.
