Roaming Ta Prohm Temple – Jungle Temple

I headlined that “The Great Explorer in Siem Reap” on my previous posting. Now, let’s imagine and pretend that you are an explorer and are walking into a forest… deep forest. There is no pathway. You even have to wade and cut small trees grown on the ground and make your own narrow path to keep moving and walking.  Suddenly, you stop because of a thing appears in front of you. The thing that may cause you to hold a breath. The thing that may make you feel stunning until you may could not stop thinking how the thing that happened. 

Yes, that was what I felt when I walked into the Ta Prohm Temple.  Even the walkpath to the Ta Prohm  Temple nowadays does not look like what I let you imagine. But you would feel that when you visit there.

Ta Prohm, intentionally left as it was found in the 19th century, appears enveloped by massive tree roots, tentacles that hold it in the convoluted grip of monstrous nature. Distorting the stonework in a way that creates a surreal effect.
