king jayavarman vii

Ta Prohm - Cambodia 

Originally known as “Rajavihara” (Monastery of the King), Ta Prohm was a Buddhist temple dedicated to the mother of King Jayavarman VII. Inscriptions on the building indicate 80,000 workers were involved in the construction of the temple. 

The temple remains almost completely in its natural state, relatively isolated in the jungle, with the various towers and monuments famously becoming bound by tree roots.
