Cambodia News (Phnom Penh): On April 13, 2020, heavy rainfall and a storm caused some damage to trees in the Ta Prohm Temple, Siem Reap. The temple, which is situated in the Ankor Wat Archeological Park, is under reconstruction at the moment.
Ta Promh became known worldwide to the general public when it was used as a location in the film Laura Croft:Tomb Raider, starring Angelina Jolie. The site is known for the magnificent trees which have grown up inside the temple walls.

Mr. Long Kosa, from the Apsara authorities, reported that after receiving information about the storm damage, he ordered a work team to remove the fallen trees to prevent further damage to the Ta Promh temple stonework. The storm last night had exceptionally strong winds causing unexpected damage to the trees at the site.

UPDATE
Restoration of Ta Prohm’s East Gate is 35 Percent Complete
AKP Phnom Penh, October 18, 2022 --

The renovation project of the east gate of Ta Prohm Temple is 35 percent complete as of mid-October, and is scheduled to be fully completed by 2023, according to the APSARA National Authority (ANA).

The team is currently restoring and installing stones in the north, south, and the roof, and about 50 percent of the roof has been restored, it added.

As for the restoration process, Ms. Net Simon, Archaeologist of the Department of Conservation of Monuments and Preventive Archaeology, explained that all the stones had to be moved to repair, and the team needed to strengthen the foundation and re-arrange the stones. A small number of stones are fragile and some are missing, requiring only a small amount of new stones.

ANA, in cooperation with Indian institutions and with the approval of the ICC-Angkor, began in early 2022 to renovate the east gate, which was so dilapidated that the structure of the gate was tilted, posing a high risk to tourists.
