Post in Temple
Russel Kwan

edition of 3

Ta Prohm temple in the Angkor complex in Cambodia is a truly mystical place, where the jungle is slowly reclaiming the buildings. Giant trees have sprouted from the towers and passageways - that is one giant root system just visible in the open part of the roof in this picture - I'm pretty sure that little wooden post isn't going to be up to the job for very long.

Unfortunately, Ta Prohm is better known as one of the locations for the movie "Tomb Raider" - even the locals are calling it the "Tomb Raider Temple" - another weird example of western culture creep.
