At the Ta Prohm temple. A small temple with a mix of trees emerging from the ruins and the surrounding jungle made it one of the most famous temples with visitors in Angkor. People would love to take a picture of the huge trees. And there are some trees that still have some bees on them. #mynovgetaway #thanksgiving
The popular movie "Tomb Raider" has taken the scene here. The entanglement of nature and faith makes this the third most popular attraction of Angkor after Angkor Wat and Bayon Temple. Its really hard to express the kind of shock in your heart. The Tabulung Temple has to come to Cambodia to have a card.
In 1186, Khmer king Jayavarman built a Tabu cage temple with a classical Bayu style in the southeast of the Victory Gate in Angkor Thom to worship his mother. The Tabu Cage Temple was built entirely in accordance with the temple with dual functions of temples and monasteries, and was also equipped with stilts, priests and dancers.
A few hundred years later, the dynasty was destroyed and the Ta Prohm temple was submerged in the rain forest until it was discovered again. The stone-built temples are intertwined with the towering ancient trees. The ancient temples are proudly maintained in this way, but the ancient temples are also damaged in this way, especially compared to the first time I came to Angkor ten years ago. The destruction of the Ta Prohm temple has become more and more serious. Nowadays, in the Ta Prohm temple, it is a collapsed stone to eat, scaffolding everywhere, and there is an urgent need for protection and repair.
Tabulung Temple, here is the location of the film (Tomb Raider), as a more famous attraction in Angkor Wat, there are many people visiting. The entire temple is surrounded by these huge trees, and the dense roots are entangled like giant pythons.
The roots of these big trees are like a huge palm. It seems that I have to pull up the building below, and I am shocked. This shocking scene is the first time I see it.
These roots penetrate deep into the stone crevices of the building and spread to the four sides. They witnessed the whole rise and fall of the Angkor civilization.
It is said that they are hollow trees, many of them have no leaves, only the huge white branches are left, and they will only be restored when the rainy season comes.
As the location of the well-known film "Tomb Raider", Taborung Temple is unique among the many temples in the Angkor complex and enjoys a great reputation. Basically, it is an attraction that every visitor will not miss.
There are still many architectural relics in the entire temple. Although some of them have been damaged, the most amazing sight here is that the ancient wood has been intertwined with the temples, and many trees are towering. The roots are carved out of the stone crevices of the temple, forming a very strange sight
walking in this large temple, surrounded by huge ancient wood, many local children leaning against the tree Above the boulder, enthusiastically sell star films, hand-painted and other souvenirs to visitors. There are also some local old people who like to bring their grandchildren to cool down here. People and nature are in harmony with each other. History and modernity are intertwined here.
Many of the beasts in the temple still have a very good shape. Stone lions, Hydra, standing on both sides of the trail, it is not difficult to find out that these seemingly inconspicuous decorations, but also have very fine carvings, each piece is vivid.
If you are a movie fan, you can still find the scenes in the movie here, as if you are going through time and space, and a dialogue with this ancient miracle will become an unforgettable memory in your life.
