Jungle temples

One of the most striking images at Angkor Wat and surrounds is the sight of temples being taken over by the jungle. Trees that have grown over doorways and walls – trees that themselves look incredibly old, but are obviously younger than the temple. This one is at Ta Prohm.

Monks are a frequent and charming sight throughout Cambodia – but they are especially picturesque in their robes and parasols among the ancient stones of the temples.
