Ta Prohm is the modern name of the temple at Angkor built in the Bayon style. Located approximately one kilometre east of Angkor Thom and on the southern edge of the East Baray, it was founded by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university.

Unlike most Angkorian temples, Ta Prohm has been left in much the same condition in which it was found: combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor’s most popular temples with visitors.

This survey includes mid range scan data from the famous area of the ta-prohm temple covered by trees and giant roots.

The acquired datas are helping the virtual reconstruction of the temple.
