Why was it so famous compared to other temples? Because Angelina Jolie was here. Clueless? Watch the Tomb Raider movie.
But taking a closer look at it, Ta Prohm turned out to have her very own unique beauty. The area is almost covered with very gigantic trees whose roots are growing in and outside the temple. Ty said, that the government has specific instructions not to cut down those trees as they might totally ruin the fullness of the now-ruined temple.

If I had known I will be blogging about this, I could've taken few decent photos of it. It was indeed a very hot afternoon, I didn't have any umbrella with me. But having my first glance at the well-known structure, I think I can consider having darker complexion for the next couple of weeks. Haha.

Walking the long pathway towards the center of the temple, had me some goose bumps for a moment. Another dream come true for me. (Thank you, Lord). My eyes were feasting. I can't hide the joy I felt. I wish I had someone to share my happiness.
As there were a lot of tourist, I had a hard time finding a good shot along the causeway. Besides, it was really hard to stay long under the sun as she merciless. So I just took a couple fo shots, then head towards the entrance of the temple.
There were two adjacent temples along the causeway. It used to be a library and a museum.
