Ta Prohm, National Road #6 Angkor Archaeological Park, Siem Reap 17252 Cambodia
Next on our itinerary is the Ta Phrom: one of these bucket list temples when entering the Angkor temple region because of its entwined connection with the Siem Reap jungle. Originally constructed as a monastery in the same century as Angkor Wat by Jayavarman VII and a shrine for its mother, archaeologists decided to leave its jungle-clad cover with huge tree roots covering the base and the roof of Ta Phrom as a reminder how the first visitors found this temple. Without a doubt, Ta Phrom has been on the foundation of Angkor’s huge popularity.
It is regretfully time to head back to your hotel under the professional guidance of your guide and driver.
