How fantastic, Marilyn. But this cannot be so good for the buildings. Dany

Nick, yes, spooky, but in a good way. Powerful trees!

Muito obrigada, Ivo.

Truly fantastic, Dany. And not so good for the buildings!

While many of the temples in the Angkor Wat area have been restored to a considerable extent, Ta Prohm has been only cleared out somewhat to show how nature had reclaimed all the temple sites until 19th and 20th century archaeologists went to work. This is definitely the most "atmospheric" of the easily-visited areas. It is fascinating!

Greetings, Marilyn

So strange tree with very huge roots.

I saw a strange one like this in Iran.

Hello Marilyn! Incredible what is build by man and taken back by nature. The balance between both is so beautifully shown, clearing the whole place would destroy ages of fall and rise of nature as well as the rise and fall of those who once lived there. The roots are almost like lava dripping down the rocks!

Greetings, Ed.

It looks like someone has poured molten tree on to the building. An amazing sight, well executed.
