Abandoned temples in Cambodia

These stunning pictures show the beautiful ruins of abandoned temples. The incredible shots, taken at temples in Angkor, Cambodia, show the striking yet haunting temples as they crumble to ruins. While they may have lost some of their former glory, the stunning temples show the beauty of the Cambodian landscape through the historic architecture.

The breathtaking range of temples includes the Ta Prohm temple, which was made famous in one of the "Tomb Raider" films, starring Angelina Jolie, and the amazing carvings of Banteay Srei, considered the most beautiful of all temples, where the carvings are among the most intricate in the world.
