Siem Reap, Cambodia

The jungle has a way of slowly consuming structures, through rain and humidity and tree growth. This particular temple has a giant tree root that is slowly strangling it, but it sure looks cool in the process! Angelina Jolie filmed part of her first Tomb Raider movie here, and little old man you see sitting in the last picture was featured on the cover of the Lonely Planet Guide to Cambodia.
