Called as the 'Tomb Raider Temple', the Ta Prohm is shadowed with jungles from all sides and appears undoubtedly the most natural ruin at Angkor. The temple looks similar to the monuments which were prevalent at the times when the explorers from Europe invaded it. Hundreds of years of old trees await your presence and welcome you with sunlight beaming from their leaves and cast a shadow on the head of the temple. Encounter yourself and your family with one of the most wonderful creations in the city.
Insights of the Ta Prohm
The Gopuras at Ta Prohm are the entrance buildings of the temple. An impressive building in the name of Gopuras welcomes the guests at Ta Prohm. It is in the structure of a huge doorway with apertures in the walls. The shape of the Gopuras is usually in the shape of crosses and are elongated along the axis. These gopuras also have a tower at the centre with the lintels and pediments decorated and carvings on the doorways.
The Hall of Dancers at Ta Prohm is a rectangular building or structure within the temple which has 4 courtyards and is located on the east axis of the temple. The roof of the hall is made up of perishable materials and pillars in the hall are carved with manuscripts, transcriptions, designs and much more. The borders of the hall contain paintings that show the apsaras dancing.
The House of Fire at Ta Prohm has thick walls and a tower which is located at western direction towards the end. This hall functions as a rest house for the people who would rest and light up fire for comfort. However, another bunch of people believe that the room was maintained for conducting sacred ceremonies of that time.
The trees at Ta Prohm grew out of the ruins which remain outside the area of the temple in the forest. Two species of trees dominate the entire jungle named as silk-cotton tree and gold apple tree. The trees make a canopy over the head of the temple and make a landscape picture for the people visiting.
