Ta Prohm, Angkor Wat, Cambodia The temple is extraordinary... But what attracts me most and far outshines the temple structure, is this tree and the other vegetation growing in, through, and amongst the temple.
Koh Ker, Cambodia. Temple in Prasat Pram made of brick is spectacularly clothed in tree roots of the strangler fig. This parasitic tree usually feeds off the tree and eventually kills its host. On this occasion the roots of the fig are both destroyer and scaffolding giving support to the loosened brickwork of the left hand tower.
