The Creepy and Mysterious Ta Prohm Temple
Quite possibly the inspiration behind video games Drakes Uncharted, the whole Tomb Raider series and maybe even the movie Alien, the Ta Prohm Temple is the modern name of a temple at Angkor, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th and early 13th centuries.
Unlike most of the temples of Angkor, Ta Prohm has been largely left to the clutches of the living jungle. With its dynamic interaction between nature and man-made art, this atmospheric temple is a favorite for many – who can’t help but feel a little like Indiana Jones or Lara Croft (which was filmed here) as they pick through the rubble.
