Angkor Waaaat?

7:23 PM

Welcome to Angkor Wat! A temple in Cambodia that's stated to be the largest religious monument on earth. Join me as I venture in one of the 7 wonders of the world.

It was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II and dedicated it to Vishnu. So that's about it, if you want to know more about the history and on what transpired back then, look it up online or of course, the trusty encyclopedia. 

Reflection on still waters. 

The structure is intricately designed, even its posts and walls. 

Fall into the trap of illusions. 

And sit on an intricately designed chair?

Here's a confession: I dream of the day when I'm trapped in a maze, seeking my way out. 

I really really really wanted to climb but we were in a hurry because we still wanted to ride the elephants. 

I don't know how these people managed to put up something this beautiful. 

I was told, thieves stole their tail.  

There are 3 entrances that were used back then, one for the animals, another for the commoners and the one in the middle is for the royalties.

I love how Cambodia's culture and identity are still intact. I feel blessed, that I was able to set foot in this gem. Aaaaaaah, Asia and its treasures. Can't wait for the next adventure.
