Photographer's Note

Ta Prohm temple is the place where nature and ancient Khmer architecture live in a perfect symbiosis. The trees and their roots have not been removed, partly because they create this special, Indiana Jones/Tomb Raider atmosphere of the place, and partly beacause they could not be removed without damaging the buildings.

This particular door, virtually swallowed by huge tree roots, is one of the landmarks of Angkor. To see how big the tree actually is, have a look here.
