Ta Prohm

Ta Prohm (here in LEGO by Toltomeja) is a Buddhist temple in Cambodia located just west of Angkor Wat and a little south of Angkor Thom. This was built in the late 12th century as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university, and it its day the complex was home to over 12,500 people. After it was abandoned four centuries ago when the Khmer Empire collapsed, the temple was slowly taken over by the jungle.
