Photographer's Note

This is once again from Ta Prohm. Two Cambodian kids roaming around the temple ruins, captured against the backdrop of those massive trees that has grown out of the ruins. The basic layout of Ta Prohm is that of a typical flat Khmer temple, with five rectangular enclosing walls around a central sanctuary. Of similar design to the later Jayavarman VII temples of Preah Khan and Banteay Kdei, this quiet, sprawling monastic complex is only partially cleared of jungle overgrowth. Intentionally left partially unrestored, massive fig and silk-cotton trees grow from the towers and corridors offering some of the best ‘tree-in-temple’ photo opportunities at Angkor. Flocks of noisy parrots flit from tree to tree adding to the jungle atmosphere.

PS : I have changed the category from Decisive Moment (which was a mistake on my part in the first place) to Ruins and Daily Life. These kids seem to belong here, so I guess it can be categorised as Daily Life.
