TA PROHM is a very large temple complex enclosed by a moat. It is one of the most beautiful of the Khmer temples as it has not been restored, but has been left surrounded by jungle. It was built by Jayavarman VII in the later 12th century


Over time the roots of giant baniyan slowly constrict the temple walls. From these walls echoed the chants of hundreds of monks well into the 12th century .
Sadly Ta Prohm has suffered the worst of the temples by looters.
