Photographer's Note

"Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven." ~ Rabindranath Tagore

Although all the Angkor temple complexes were completely overgrown by jungle for quite some time, in the late 19th century, when the French made it known world-wide, some temples were cleared from the jungles.

Ta Prohm is the one temple complex where the jungle was not cleared.

Here, some of the jungle is left and it creates impressive sights with huge trees growing on top of the temple walls.

As written by the French writer Elie Laure:‘with its millions of knotted limbs, the forest embraces the ruins with a violent love’.
