|English term or phrase: vine trees|
|some temples have been overtaken by nature itself...lifted off the ground by huge vine trees.|
Judging from your context, these would be Bunyan-Bäume [Araucaria bidwilii (Bunyan-bunyan tree)]. These trees, which are considered sacred, are often planted near temples or sacred places, and they do look rather vine-like.
The only other reference to "vine tree" I could find is biblical: Weinstock (4. Mose, 6,4), but I don't think that would apply to your context.
