Ta Prohm at Angkor is the most frequented site there. The temple complex coexists with or is spectacularly engulfed by tropical forest. The author of this deeply felt systematic study is a senior Indian diplomat and engineer who is a leader in efforts to preserve the monument. There is an account of the history of the complex, the life of its builder Javavarman the 7th, the architecture, purpose and layout of the buildings; the associated religious traditions and then a discussion of crucial issues of restoration and environmental protection. With appended documents, 210 black-and-white photographs, architectural plans, drawings, glossary and bibliography.
