Angkor Wat and the surrounding temples are best seen in person, of course! The ruins are expertly designed temples with passageways leading in all directions. Ornate carvings and statues adorn temple doorways and walls.
A visit to Angkor Wat Archaeological Park brings you back in time many hundreds of years and creates a feeling that you have truly found a lost treasure. Here are 13 photos to transport you to Angkor Wat and its complex of temples.
13 Photos to Transport You to Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat just before sunrise. It was so exciting to see the first light behind the buildings.
Jungle trees are forever trying to reclaim the temples.
It was perfect timing to catch these Monks coming out of the Bayon.
Ornate carvings have remained intact over time.
The artistry and the work that must have gone into the carvings is not lost upon today’s visitors.
Formidable entryways lead the way to the inner workings of many temples.
Many of the temples have statues of deities and animals like elephants and bulls.
This was one of several structures that composed the Preah Ko Temple.
Every detail is so ornately carved.
The Bayon has 4 faces carved into each stupa. These stupas were very different from the ones I saw in Bangkok.
It’s very easy to get “lost” within the larger temples. Passageways like this lead to different rooms and outdoor areas.
Banteay Srey is a stunning temple with pink sandstone carvings.
Seeing the sunrise at Angkor Wat is definitely a bucket list experience!
Will you be traveling to Angkor Wat soon?
