Today we went to a temple called Ta Prohm. Itis over 1,000 years old! It was only found in the jungle two hundred years ago. The archeologists never fixed it up. They left it the way they found it. We felt like real explorers. I was surprised that it had gigantic trees growing on top of it! Did you know that if the temple wasn't there, the tree wouldn't survive and if the tree wasn't there, the temple would fall down. They support each other. This is a picture of my dad and I acting silly!
This is a picture of the whole temple.
This is one of the tree roots that is growing over the temple. The trees got there because birds dropped seeds on top of it when they were eating. It is really hot and wet in Cambodia, so the seeds started growing.
More tree roots.
This is a picture of my dad banging his chest in the echo chamber. It made a really big gong sound!
