Description

This little carving has become quite popular in recent years. Some think it is evidence that dinosaurs existing during human times. Being that Ta Prohm was constructed around the 12 century, they hardly had the technology to determine what a stegosaurus looked like even if they unearthed some dinosaur bones. Others believe it is a rhinoceros with leaves behind it. There is even another suggestion that it is a hoax put there as a joke. I can tell you that I don't believe this is a hoax in any way possible. Anyone that has been here can tell it is very obvious it is old and similar to the other carvings along that area and throughout Ta Prohm.

Short Walk: Enter from the west gate and walk through two low doorways. When you exit that second doorway, make an immediate right along the outside of the doorway. At the inside corner, about chest height you'll find the Stegosaurus.
