Ta Prohm is the undisputed capital of the kingdom of the Trees. It has been left untouched by archaeologists except for the clearing of a path for visitors and structural strengthening to stave off further deterioration. It is possible to experience at this temple the wonder of the early explorers when they came upon these monuments in the middle of the nineteenth century. Fig, banyan and kapok trees spread their gigantic roots over stones, probing walls and terraces apart, as their branches and leaves intertwine to form a roof over the structures. Trunks of trees twist amongst stone pillars. (www.tourismcambodia.com/attractions/angkor/ta-prohm.htm)

Ta Prohm is the modern name of the temple at Angkor area in Siem Reap Province in Cambodia. This temple was built starting in 1186 ad in Khmer Empire architectural style founded by King Jayavarman VII as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university.
The temple of Ta Prohm was used as a location in the film Tomb Raider. Its scenes of Ta Prohm were quite faithful to the temple's actual appearance and made use of its eerie qualities.

South-western corner of the outer gallery of Angkor Wat. To the left is the main entrance (Western Entrance) and the Terrace of honor.

Angkor Wat ("Capital Temple") is a temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world measuring 162.6 hectares. It was originally constructed in early 12th century by King Suryavarman II as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire and gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious center since its foundation. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia (national flag) and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.
Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple-mountain and the later galleried temple. It is designed to represent Mount Meru. Within the moat is the outer wall 3.6 kilometers long and there are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the center of the temple stands a quincunx of towers. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs, and for the numerous devatas (deity) adorning its walls.

Inside the South Gallery at the Southern Entrance shows a Buddhist image. Many of the Buddhist heads were removed by Khmer Rouge and other pillagers for money.
