Photographer's Note

This is one of the Trees which makes Ta Prohm one of the best known Temples at Angkor. These trees started growing on the tops of the temples, and sent roots to the ground as they grew. Now these trees are both the killers and the saviors of the temple walls. Their weight and size will eventually cause the temple to collapse, but as of now, the roots are what is holding the walls up too. To remove the tree would cause the collapse of the temple, to leave it there will cause the collapse as well.........
