Stegosaurus Carving at Ta Prohm

Walking through the ancient temple, built in 1186 AD, this carving was a nice surprise. There are hundreds of small carvings in Ta Prohm, part of the Angkor World Heritage site. Someone pointed out this “stegosaurus” to me and I had to get a record of it. There are two theories of how a dinosaur came to be carved into a temple over 800 years old. Firstly, it could be a carving of something other than a stegosaurus. Alternatively this could be put there more recently as a joke for unsuspecting tourists.
