Jayawarman VII built Rajavihara to honor the family. The temple to represent Prajnaparamita as the personification of wisdom modeled by the king's mother. Satellite temples in the north and south are dedicated to Jayamangalartha as the king's teacher. Ta Prohm forms a complement with the monastery of the Preah Khan temple built in 1191 and dedicated to the Bodhisattva by the king's father.

Ta Prohm is a flat Khmer temple in which Five circular rectangular walls surround the center and orient to the east like most Khmer temples. The outer wall is 1000 meters long and 650 meters wide for an area of 650,000 sq meters which is the location of the big city, but now most of it is forest.

The gopuras entrance is at every point of the cardinal, though today it is only possible from east and west. Some facial towers similar to Bayon are added to gopuras, but have collapsed. The ditches are built inside and outside the four walls. The library in the first and third southeast corner, the satellite temples on the north and south side, the Dancer Hall between east gopuras and the House of Fire in the east.

Temple inscriptions say the site is home to over 12,500 people including 18 high priests and 615 dancers with an additional 800,000 people in the surrounding villages who work to provide services and supplies. The inscription also records the enormous wealth including gold, pearls, and silk. Additional development for Ta Prohm continued until the end of Srindravarman's reign in the 15th century.

Ta Prohm began to be abandoned and ignored for centuries after the collapse of the Khmer Empire in the 15th century. In 2013, the Archaeological Survey of India has restored most of the complexes that have been partially built from scratch. Wooden walkways, platforms and fences have been installed to protect the monument from further damage.

The trees that grow in the ruins are striking features of Ta Prohm, including the silk-cotton tree (Ceiba pentandra), thitpok (Tetrameles nudiflora), strangler fig (Ficus gibbosa) and gold apple (Diospyros decandra). The trees towered into the sky under the shade of the green canopy and roots dangling on the ground to circle more like reptiles than plants.
