Ta Prohm


Ta Prohm was the second temple we visited.  This is the one that has LOTS of really big, old trees growing all around it.  This one is famous because Angelina Jolie shot scenes from the movie Tomb Raider here.  What I loved about this one is that you realize how old the stones are when you see how large the trees are on top of them.  Also it makes you realize how nature is stronger and more powerful than man.  Even though these temples were built tall and strong, nature came in and took over.  This temple, like Angkor Wat, is made of Sandstone.  The temples in Siem Reap are made from three different materials; Sandstone, Lava Stone, and Bricks.  It is really incredible how well they've held up throughout time.
