Photographer's Note

Ta prohm is the modern name of the temple in Siem Reap built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th and early 13th centuries and originally called Rajavihara. Located approximately one kilometre east of Angkor Thom and on the southern edge of the East Baray, it was founded by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university.

The name of the huge tree encircling this structure at Ta prohm is almost as long as the roots: Tetrameles nudiflora. This is the most famous and iconic spung tree in Cambodia. They have the capacity to grow up to 70 feet. Source : https://www.encirclephotos.com/
