Shrouded in dense jungle the temple of Ta Prohm is ethereal in aspect and conjures up a romantic aura.

Trunks of trees twist amongst stone pillars. The strange, haunted charm of the place entwines itself about you as you go, as inescapably as the roots have wound themselves about the walls and towers.
