One of the area ‘ s most beautiful temples, Ta Prohm has been relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery.

The name Samre refers to an ethnic group of mountain people, who inhabited the region at the base of Phnom Kulen and were probably related to the Khmers. No inscriptions have been found for this temple, but the style of most of the architecture is of the classic art of the middle period similar to Angkor Wat.
