Being surrounded by trees is a heavenly feeling for me. And it was a really heavenly feeling roaming around Ta Prohm. Huge trees that are hundreds of years old blend and grow out of the temple walls and the giant roots sprawl through the rocks giving the place that surreal atmosphere. These massive trees tower overhead making their leaves filter the sunlight, providing a welcome shade. It’s been said that Ta Prohm was pretty much left the way it was first discovered thus you can’t help but feel a little like Lara Croft. 🙂
I decided to post only about the huge trees here. More of the monastery/temple some other time. My photos can’t give enough justice as to how photogenic the place is but let me share it with you just the same.
A few minutes walk from the West Gate entrance are these two, tall trees. And then…
This. Then you’ll be entering the main area.
Once you’re inside, lots and lots of massive trees await you.
The next set of photos is a tree leaning to one side. It’s one of my favorites and this was where I started to totally feel the place.
And here comes more giant trees and roots… 🙂
And of course, it’s not complete without seeing the Tomb Raider Tree! 🙂
And then behind that…
I wanted to show you more but it’s all I have left, a lot of photos got deleted and my SD card got corrupted and I didn’t know what to do then, but still I hope you enjoyed this post.
Happy Thursday, homo sapiens! 🙂
One of the most amazing things I’ve seen during my trip to Cambodia were the giant trees in the temples. The two photos below are taken from Ta Prohm. There were a lot of giant trees in and out of the temple but I’ll leave you with this one for now. I hope to post more of these huge trees in another entry so watch out for that. 🙂
Happy Thursday, homo sapiens!
