Chhop 33, Sour 60, Some 30
Angkor Wat (Temple),Cambodia
Chhop, Some, and Sour live in the Preas Entap Pagoda which is very close to the abandoned temple of Ta Prohm in Angkor Wat. After their morning meditation they frequently visit the temple before the tourists begin arriving. Ta Prohm was built in the 12th century as a Buddhist monastery and was once home to more than 12,000 people. It was later abandoned in the 15th century and subsequently overtaken by strangler fig and silk-cotton trees. Unlike most of the other Angkorian temples, Ta Prohm has been left in much the same condition in which it was found. In 2001 Ta Prohm was used as a set for the film “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” starring Angelina Jolie.
