  Ta Prohm
The western gate of Ta Prohm is to be found a kilometre south of the crossing leading to Ta Keo.
It chose Ta Prohm - one of the most imposing and the one which had best merged with the jungle, but not yet to the point of becoming a part of it - as but one specimen typical of a form of Khmer art of which there were already other models.
Ta Prohm should be visited either in the afternoon or the early morning, and crossed from west to east according to the itinerary that we have traced on the plan.

 Ta Prohm -  Cambodia
Ta Prohm, which was consecrated in 1186 and has been home to more than 2,700 monks, was rediscovered in the 19th century.
However, Mr Narasimhan says the work is made easier because Ta Prohm is similar to one of India's largest Hindu temples, the Lord Ranganathaswamy temple in the southern state of Karnataka.
The stele of Ta Prohm is inscribed on its four sides and was found in a part of the gallery preceding the eastern gopura of the second enclosure.

 Cambodia Jungle Wat (Ta Prohm) Photos
Ta Prohm is a temple at Angkor, Cambodia, built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th and early 13th centuries.
Unlike most of the other Angkor temples, Ta Prohm has been left in much the same condition in which it was found: the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor's most popular temples with visitors
When the effort to conserve and restore the temples of Angkor began in the early 20th century, Ta Prohm was chosen by the École Française d'Extrême-Orient to be left largely as it was found as a "concession to the general taste for the picturesque" (Glaize).

Dat verklaart de volkomen andere opzet van het complex.

 Don Daniels' Home Page - Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm, Cambodia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The eerie silence and solitude, standing in a spot from which an amazing civilization had totally disappeared some five hundred years before, the remoteness from current civilization -- these all had an overpowering effect on our senses.
The relentless crush of the jungle reclaiming Ta Prohm as its own, fills one with awe of the power of nature over man who, ultimately, can only stand against it in spirit.
Somehow, that spirit reaches out from hundreds of years ago to touch not only myself who stood there in silent wonder but, years later through my testimony and photos, another who, through the detailed magic of his art, passes on that spirit to how many countless more...
