When a Temple is Forgotten

These are the kinds of places that are too cool to be true. I think these are called "banyan trees" (no doubt one of my smart readers will correct me if I'm wrong!), and their seeds fell centuries ago on top of these old tombs. Although not part of the main complex, the temple of Ta Prohm is still considered part of Angkor Wat. It's a distance away, but, in many ways, cooler than the main temple.

 

Maybe I was lucky, the the days I spent there hardly had any tourists around. There were a few monks, but most of them were not Cambiodian and had traveled there from other monasteries all over the world.

 

Probably the coolest thing about the place was the ability to go anywhere and do anything. No little chamber, passageway, doorway, or underground mystery was off limits. It was definitely one of the best places for spontaneous adventure that I have ever been.

 

Note this was made with Lucis Pro 6.0... a few months ago, I did Lucis Tutorial, in case you want to know more.
