okay time for another picture from my bulging folders on this poor laptop picture for today 12/10/14

Ta Prom a rather fabulous place that looks like it is from some old black and white sci-fi film set but it's real! yup i know right ^_^

Ta Prohm a rather fabulous place that looks like it is from some old black and white sci-fi film set but it’s real!
yup i know right ^_^

So how gorgeous is this? or one could use the word amazing, it seriously looks like you have stumbled onto some fifties black and white science fiction film set, its like you could imagine some guy shouting ‘cut’ or berating some poor girl for not giving enough ‘depth’ or ’emotion’ as she is eaten by some badly built monster whose clockwork insides threaten to spew cogs over the guys with huge clunky cameras, I love old black and white films, I could spend all day watching them especially if it is raining and dark outside, the more stormy the weather the more I want to snuggle up and watch old films.

Yet this place is real and oh my I would absolutely love to go visit it someday – yes I know I have entered the realms of fantasy once again but I can dream, and should I ever win the lottery or who knows maybe one day my books will sell in huge amounts ^_^ then here is on top of the list of places I have to go visit, well no actually the Maldives is number one it is possibly the one place I would simply have to go but you know right after the Maldives I shall go here then probably back to the Maldives hmm think I need enough money to simply set up home in the Maldives and visit everywhere from there ^_^ now that is a fantasy worth having.

so let’s have some background as to what and where this place really is

The octopus-like roots of a tree grow over a building entrance just before the inner moat at Angkor’s Ta Prohm site.

Ta Prohm was built as a double-moated, royal monastery during the reign of Jayavarman VII at the end of the twelfth century. As a Mahayana Buddhist, the king dedicated the monument to his mother envisioned as a “bodhisattva” or saint of compassion. The images of Buddha himself were removed from the temple by Jayavarman VII’s successor, Jayavarman VIII, who was a Hindu.

When French explorers first discovered the overgrown buildings at the ancient capital of Angkor in the late 1800s, much of the area was completely covered by forest. In particular, the roots of strangler figs, kapok, and banyan trees aggressively encompassed the Angkor structures.

This small site was deliberately left unconserved by French archaeologists to create a sharp contrast with their painstaking reconstruction of the temples in the Angkor Wat complex. At present, the temple is only conserved to prevent further building collapses and to clear passage for visitors. Even these two goals require considerable labor and forest management.

there are some fabulous pictures out there so now you know what to look for go and have a look about, this place has a lot more to it and the pictures are amazing! I love history and I adore ancient history, there is so much that has gone before that we know nothing about, in another life I am quite sure I am an archeologist- that would have been such a fabulous job, and we are indebted to the hard work of these people and also to conservationists who work tirelessly and compassionately to help preserve these ancient wonders each day through these and other people new discoveries are made and are often astounding, and I feel it helps to feel more connected to our roots as human beings to see and wonder at these marvels, just as science especially physics one of my fave subjects shows us the future so the work of archeologists and others shows us the past and it is all part of us where we have come from and where we are going to. The past has many secrets to share with us yet and I find it exciting and wait with baited breath for each new discovery.

love and peace be with you all
