The popular movie "Tomb Raider" has taken the scene here. The entanglement of nature and faith makes this the third most popular attraction of Angkor after Angkor Wat and Bayon Temple. Its really hard to express the kind of shock in your heart. The Tabulung Temple has to come to Cambodia to have a card.
In 1186, Khmer king Jayavarman built a Tabu cage temple with a classical Bayu style in the southeast of the Victory Gate in Angkor Thom to worship his mother. The Tabu Cage Temple was built entirely in accordance with the temple with dual functions of temples and monasteries, and was also equipped with stilts, priests and dancers.
A few hundred years later, the dynasty was destroyed and the Ta Prohm temple was submerged in the rain forest until it was discovered again. The stone-built temples are intertwined with the towering ancient trees. The ancient temples are proudly maintained in this way, but the ancient temples are also damaged in this way, especially compared to the first time I came to Angkor ten years ago. The destruction of the Ta Prohm temple has become more and more serious. Nowadays, in the Ta Prohm temple, it is a collapsed stone to eat, scaffolding everywhere, and there is an urgent need for protection and repair.
Tabulung Temple, here is the location of the film (Tomb Raider), as a more famous attraction in Angkor Wat, there are many people visiting. The entire temple is surrounded by these huge trees, and the dense roots are entangled like giant pythons.
The roots of these big trees are like a huge palm. It seems that I have to pull up the building below, and I am shocked. This shocking scene is the first time I see it.
These roots penetrate deep into the stone crevices of the building and spread to the four sides. They witnessed the whole rise and fall of the Angkor civilization.
It is said that they are hollow trees, many of them have no leaves, only the huge white branches are left, and they will only be restored when the rainy season comes.
As the location of the well-known film "Tomb Raider", Taborung Temple is unique among the many temples in the Angkor complex and enjoys a great reputation. Basically, it is an attraction that every visitor will not miss.
There are still many architectural relics in the entire temple. Although some of them have been damaged, the most amazing sight here is that the ancient wood has been intertwined with the temples, and many trees are towering. The roots are carved out of the stone crevices of the temple, forming a very strange sight
walking in this large temple, surrounded by huge ancient wood, many local children leaning against the tree Above the boulder, enthusiastically sell star films, hand-painted and other souvenirs to visitors. There are also some local old people who like to bring their grandchildren to cool down here. People and nature are in harmony with each other. History and modernity are intertwined here.
Many of the beasts in the temple still have a very good shape. Stone lions, Hydra, standing on both sides of the trail, it is not difficult to find out that these seemingly inconspicuous decorations, but also have very fine carvings, each piece is vivid.
If you are a movie fan, you can still find the scenes in the movie here, as if you are going through time and space, and a dialogue with this ancient miracle will become an unforgettable memory in your life.
Located on the east side of Angkor Wat, Tabu Cage Temple is a large stone-built Buddhist temple, one of the main buildings in the Angkor ruins, and the location of the movie Tomb Raider. Built at the end of the 12th century, it was built by the seventh king of mo to commemorate his mother, also known as the mother temple. At that time there were 3,000 monks in the temple, including 18 sorghums.
Tabu Cage Temple is undoubtedly the most artistic relic of Angkor and an indispensable visit for every traveler. Unlike other temples, its appeal is that the temple has been swallowed up by the jungle and looks like the first time an European explorer discovered the Angkor temple.
In fact, the forests around the temple have been cleaned up, and only the largest old trees remain in place, and people regularly pruned them instead of being as primitive as the collapsed columns. But in any case, visiting the Tabu Cage Temple is a unique experience.
entrance, the stone is everywhere, as if you have just discovered this place. The tall trees in the Tabu Cage Temple cover the sky, so the tour group will visit at noon, and the shade will make the tour easier and cooler, so the crowd will be rolling. To see the most memorable views of the Tabu Cage Temple, come in the morning when most travelers don't arrive. If you especially want to turn around in a maze-like corridor, and then take a closer look at the tree roots that are quite characteristic, it will take at least 2 hours.
The thick and thick roots of the tree stems reach the roof, wrap the stone beams, explore the stone seams, wrap the corridors, climb the doors and windows, they are everywhere, almost integrated with the temple, you have me I have you. Exquisite stone carvings can be seen everywhere, and the light and shadow are mottled, depicting the scenes of the past.
The collapsed cloister, visitors may have climbed the ruined corridor before, but now this behavior has been banned, both to protect the temple and to take into account the safety of visitors. Many places now have signs prohibiting climbing. Many of the boulders here weigh more than 1 ton and are in an unstable equilibrium. Once collapsed, the consequences are unimaginable.
Among the many intricate root systems, the tree in the easternmost tower of the courtyard center is the most popular, and the nickname "crocodile tree". This scene is very well-known, and many photos of the travel notes and descriptions of the Tabu Cage Temple will use this scene. There is a viewing platform under the tree to take photos with the trees. Wide angle is a must, otherwise it is difficult to put on a big tree.
Ta Prohm is located east of Angkor Wat. It was built by Khmer King Jayavarman VII in the year 1186, and was constructed in memory of his mother. Therefore, it's also called Mother Temple. It's made of large stones stacked together, and was once a temple filled with eminent monks, priests and dancers, possessing the dual function of a temple and an Ashram. With the passing of time, the growing tropical trees have invaded, the roots climbing all over the temple and penetrating into the building, causing the internal stone towers and walls to collapse. The original building has become a maze due to the intertwining of gravel and plants.
