Engulfed by the jungle

The moment you enter the Temple of Snakes, you find yourself in a fabled temple in the city of Angkor in Cambodia.

Once a people called the khmers lived here, but they suddenly left the city, and the temple was engulfed by the jungle. Years later the city was rediscovered, and attempts were made to restore the temples – several unsuccessful as giant trees had grown through the masonry.

The snakes in this temple are small, non-poisonous constrictors and of no danger to you. But please do not touch them - they can bite!
