Ta Prohm . Dubbed the Tomb Raider temple . Constructed in 1186 as one of the first buildings in Jayavarman VII’. Ta Prohm sits on Angkor’s small circuit, to reach Ta Prohm is about 5 min tuktuk ride from angkok wat . the famous Tomb Raider tree can be found in the central sanctuary. the narrow walkways and corridors inside Ta Prohm can get crowded and frustrating to navigate as crowd tend to flock there at the same time
Because the famous Tabu Cage Temple in the movie Tomb Raider is absolutely one of the most popular monuments in Angkor. No matter when it goes, it is crowded. From the moment you enter the gate of Tablon Monastery, you will find that it is different from other temples in Angkor Wat. In Angkor, the hottest afternoon is the most popular one. When you come to Tablon Monastery, you feel very cool and refreshing. [Kapok] The trees here are very luxuriant. They are called kapok trees, which have huge roots and grow around the monastery for hundreds of years. They are interdependent. Trees and monasteries are inseparable. Every corner of Tabu Cage Monastery shows the strength of nature. Under the pressure of the roots of Kapok trees, many temple doors and corridors have been deformed. The temple also has a very cool and comfortable corridor, sunshine sprinkled from the collapsed walls, time seems to be fixed at this moment. Traveling under the shade of trees and visiting temples are the most pleasant experiences in Angkor. The best time to visit Tabulang Temple is in the afternoon. It's very cool here. I strongly recommend that Tabulong Temple be left in the hot afternoon. Apart from attracting tourists with the temple's own characteristics, Tomb Raider is undoubtedly the most powerful propaganda film in Angkor Wat and Tablecage Temple, which shows the mysterious ancient empire to all the people in the world. In the movie, Angelina Jolie plays Laura who meets a little girl at the gate of Tablecage Temple and is attracted to the temple to take a treasure trip. You don't have to look for the temple gate in the movie, because you can easily see a viewing platform in the scenic spot, surrounded by ropes, behind which is a big tree to seal a temple door, and many people are waiting in line to take pictures. Because they are foreign movies, most of them attract foreigners to take pictures. They are all in line in good order. Here, at last, I don't have to compete with the Chinese aunt, and I don't have to rush for photos. Easy group photo.
yes，deserived worth to visit here to find the mytery smile of angkor
Tapulun Temple, the most unforgettable combination of ancient trees and temples. It was afternoon, very sophisticated and peaceful. Especially light is very suitable for photography. It was once famous for shooting "Tomb Raider" here. Some parts of the temple are pressed under the big trees, entangled with the roots, and some parts have been crowded by the roots. The ancient trees can be seen. There are not many people here. It's totally different from traveling in China. It's so comfortable. In April, the weather is very hot, so we have to endure the heat of noon. A place worth visiting.
Taplan Monastery is a famous ancient building. According to textual research, it was built by Gaya Warman VII in 1186 in memory of his mother. Approaching Tapulun Temple, a tall four-sided Buddha stands facing it. When I enter the outer door, I can't see any historic sites. It feels like I'm walking into a dense forest, and the space is filled with light music, which is the voice of the band of disabled people playing in the shade of trees. Walking through a dense forest, you will find the hidden Temple of Tapulun. In fact, when it was discovered by the French in the 19th century, many of its palace walls and Gates had been enclosed by giant trees. In order to avoid further damage caused by pulling out the ancient wood, later generations also preserved these intertwined giant trees as part of the history of the temple. Now when you walk into the temple, you can still see the roots of what the local people call the Kapok, which go around the beams and columns, the cracks in the rocks, the eaves, the doors and windows. It is a profound insight into the subtle relationship between nature and man-made, which not only competes with each other, but also depends on each other.
Angelina Jolie's role as Laura leaps down from the banyan tree on the outside wall of the tomb in Tomb Raider, making Tablon Monastery very popular. Expectations for it are very high. On-site visits, there is no imaginary shock. The reason is that too many tourists, coupled with the sudden change in the weather and gloomy weather, rushed to the end of the tour before the torrential rain. Tablon remained what it looked like when it was discovered in the nineteenth century because it was wrapped around the roots of giant trees and twisted with stones. If you don't have time to crash Mile, Tablonch's spectacular landscape will be enough to shock you. In addition to the magnificent natural scenery, the various reliefs in the temple are also very exquisite, while the temple is dedicated to "Goddess of Wisdom", which is said to be the sculpture of Kayehuo Roman VII according to his mother's appearance. In addition to the special "transcendental monks" gable wall, there are many beautiful sculptures, including the Buddha's deeds, as well as the image of the Earth Goddess Pudevi holding the hair valve. There is also a very special building called "Knock on the Heart Pagoda" in the Temple of Taplen, which was originally set up for the King. The special vertebroid architecture design makes the echoes on both sides big and in the middle small. If you stand in the tower, lean back against the wall, look up at the sky, and then beat your chest, the whole tower will give a magnificent echo. (Too many people, we forgot to find this interesting point at all.) Tips - "If you want to have a quiet tour, it's estimated that no one will be there by 7 a.m. Tabu cage temple is so famous that it is overcrowded almost all the time, which will affect the mood of tours. We arrived at five o'clock in the afternoon. We thought there would be fewer people. In fact, there were many people, second only to Angkor Jr. But Angkor is so big that it has little impact. Because of the collapse of Tabu Cage, many roads were blocked, and the original big temple felt very crowded. It feels like a famous scenic spot in China. The signboard trees are surrounded and lined up for photographs. It's hard to photograph the spectacle of trees and rocks entangled without heads.
TA PROHM is located about one kilometer east of Angkor City. Tabumiao Temple was built in 186 to commemorate the mother of King Hayabamo VII. Inside the temple, Prajnaparamita (Prajnaparamita) was worshipped. Legend has it that it was carved on the basis of the image of the mother of King Hayabamo VII. When it was first discovered, it was abandoned for renovation by a tree called Kabok (Gibe). At the top of the corridor, there are a series of reliefs of fairies Apsara, revealing elegant and romantic atmosphere, so it has the reputation of "Dancer Corridor". There is also an inner room called "Echo Tower", standing at a certain point in the tower, slapping the chest will produce a magnificent echo.
It used to be the shooting site of Tomb Raider and Mood Age. There were many people standing in line to take pictures at the shooting site. The best way to visit was to go through the East Gate to the West Gate without repeating the route. The most mysterious scenic spot in Angkor Grottoes is the huge trees which come out from all corners of the temple, which makes people admire the miracle of life. Many parts of Angkor Wat are being restored, and this is aided by India.
In the movie Tomb Raider, Angelina Jolie stands in a temple that seems to grow ancient trees from stones, and a Cambodian girl appears and disappears. This scene was shot in Ta Prohm. There is a Naga in front of the temple. In Angkor Wat, Naga is often seen. It is a mysterious creature in Hindu mythology. It occupies the same position as dragon in China in Cambodia. It is also similar to dragon in shape. It usually has five, seven or nine heads, which are fan-shaped. Legend has it that when Sakyamuni was practicing under the Bodhi tree, it was raining heavily. Naga, a seven-headed snake, turned into a prince's mount. In order to help the prince shelter himself from the rain, one head was not enough. Seven heads could shelter the rain from all directions. The snake that protects Buddha is a good snake, so behind its seemingly ferocious face is a kind and caring heart. The most prominent feature of Tabu Cage Temple is that there are many huge trees entangled with Buddhist pagodas and temples. It is not clear whether it is a rattan-entangled temple or a temple-entangled rattan. It is amazing the power and creation of nature. However, this also poses a dilemma to the protection of cultural relics. If ancient trees are allowed to grow, damaged ancient buildings will eventually fall apart. If winding ancient trees are cut down, some ancient buildings will collapse. We arrived at the temple at 12 noon and the temperature was above 34 degrees. But because it is full of tall trees, even the noon sun is not too hot.
Tapulun Temple, also known as "Tabulang Temple", is famous for its location in the movie "Tomb Raider". There are more foreign tourists here, mostly thanks to Angelina Jolie's contribution. They also call the Taplan Temple "Angelina's temple". Tapulun Temple is now adopted and maintained by India, so the ancient trees in the temple must be preserved. It is the most primitive temple in Angkor. The most important thing is that the ancient trees in the temple are intertwined with the old temples, forming the symbiosis between you and me, which makes people admire the natural ghost axe and magic. The sculptures in the temple are also very exquisite and worth seeing.
