Siem Reap, Cambodia
This iReport is part of an assignment:
Cambodia’s spectacular ruins
Trees at Angkor complex
These photos were taken at Ta Prohm and Beng Mealea at Siem Reap. The magnificent trees with their trunks and roots entwining around the temples riveted my attention. I gazed at them in awe when I roamed around the Angkor complex. I wonder how the ancient trees can still hold the structures steadily in place.
These thorny trees really add deep historical meaning and sense of mystery to those relics and show how the natural beauty can blend well with the ancient ruins. Do spend some time to appreciate these trees when you pay a visit to the temples at Angkor complex in the future!
