The Ta Prohm temple was built in the late 12th century during the reign of king Jayavarman VII. It is one of the most popular temples of Angkor, because it has been left in an unrestored state, swallowed by the jungle with trees overgrowing the ruins. It is a temple of towers, closed courtyards and narrow corridors.
