Ta Prohm (Khmer) is the modern day given name of a temple at Angkor, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, constructed in the Bayon style generally in the late 12th and early on 13th centuries and actually called Rajavihara (Khmer). Positioned around one kilometer east of Angkor Thom and on the southern edge of the East Baray , this was constructed by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery as well as university. UNESCO recorded Ta Prohm on the World Heritage List in 1992. Nowadays, it is probably one of the most visited complexes in Cambodia’s Angkor region.
