Buddha in a tree

The Ta Prohm Temple in the Angkor complex in Cambodia is famous because  gigantic trees grow from the stone temple. It was the backdrop for the film “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” and is what most people imagine when they think of an ancient temple hidden in the jungle. The following photo show a human-sized Buddha head almost consumed by tree roots.

To provide context, the next shot show how the trees and tourists are expanding to engulf the temple.
