Posted on Posted in Travel Blogs

Ta promh darkTa Promh Temple is a Buddhist temple which built by the king Jayavaraman the VII  in 1186 AD dedicated to his mother.  shrouded in the jungle, Ta Promh temple is ethereal in aspect and conjures up to aromatic aura. Trunks of trees twist amongst stone pillars. The SPUNG trees spread their gigantic roots over,under and in between the sandstone, probing walls and terraces apart, as their branches and leaves intertwine to form a roof above the magical temple structure.

The east entrance is signaled by a gopura in the outer rampart of the temple. there is a sandstone hall just north of the gopura known as the hall of dancers which is distinguished by large, square pillars. the central sanctuary itself is easy to miss and stone out because of its absence of decoration. the stone has been hammered, possibly to prepare it for covering stucco and gilding, which has since fallen off. This accounts for the plainness of the walls of this important shrine. Evenly spaced holes on the inner walls of the central sanctuary suggested they were originally covered with metal sheets.
