Ta Prohm Temples Among the Trees in Angkor Cambodia - One of Sam's Exotic Travels 

Built in the mid 12th to the early 13th Century by Javavarman VI, Ta Prohm was a temple monastery built to honor the the king’s mother. It featured a set of concentric galleries with corner enclosures. It is best known today in that trees had become interlaced among the ruins when discovered in the 19th century. While restoration work is being painstakingly undertaken today, as the trees had become an integral part of many of the structures, they have been left undisturbed – which adds to its appeal from my perspective.
