Ta Prohm Online

Ta Prohm was originally called Rajavihara, which means Royal Temple. Ta Prohm was built by King Jayavarman VII in the late 12th and early 13th centuries. He was the most prolific builder of all the Angkor Kings, which is quite a distinction when one considers the number of temples erected during the Empire's golden age. The majority of the Angkor sites on the Little Circuit were constructed during his reign. Ta Prohm consists of a series of long, low buildings, with passages and concentric galleries connecting them. Ta Prohm outer enclosure wall surrounds the whole complex. This mighty wall measures one kilometer in length and 0.7 kilometers in width.

The stele recorded that 79,364 people worked at Ta Prohm. These include 18 high priests, 2740 officials, 2202 assistants, and even 615 dancers. The property that the temple owns includes golden dishes weighing more than 500 kilograms, 35 diamonds, 40620 pearls, and other precious material. While these number may have been overblown to exaggerate the glory of Jayavarman VII, it is without doubt that Ta Prohm is impressive.
