Photographer's Note

This is a view of the main entryway to one of the Ta Prohm temples. The lower areas to the left and right of this walk may have once have been a shallow moat with Lotus growing in it. This would have been a common feature in many of these old temples. The moat was not to keep people out. There were spiritual conontations to the water and to Lotus growing in it. The water also created a berrier to subterranian termites which eventually destroyed any wooden elements of the ancient temple buildings in this area.
