Untamed Remains (by jamescharlick)
Preah Khan is a 12th Century temple at Angkor, Cambodia, and was the centre of a substantial organisation, with almost 100,000 officials and servants. The temple is flat in design, with a basic plan of successive rectangular galleries around a Buddhist sanctuary complicated by Hindu satellite temples and numerous later additions.
Preah Khan was built on the battle site where King Jaya-varman VII finally defeated the Chams, and as such the name translates as Royal Sword or Holy Sword. It is largely unrestored, however some clearing and cleaning of the site has taken place to preserve the temple and make it accessible to visitors.
From memory, although I can’t confirm it, this is over the roof of the Northern part taken from the West. You can see there is a partially collapsed corridor on the left in the foreground and above that in the distance a gateway area. The tree in the center is growing on top of the temple roof which has collapsed nearer the camera in the bottom right. It just goes to show that even now you can step off the beaten path and find something totally wild.
