The Angkor Temples

Boy oh boy have I seen some temples during my world travels, particularly through my extended wanderings across China, India Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. But in terms of grandeur and scale, I’m not sure anything can quite compare to the awe-inspiring temples of Angkor in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Bayon Temple, Angkor. Siem Reap, Cambodia. November 2015.

Epic in proportion, intricate in detail, sublime in symmetry… these logic-defying structures are the result of Cambodia’s ancient rulers battling to outdo each other with each ambitious creation. If you’re new to the whole Asian temple malarkey you could easily spend an entire week here seeking out everything on offer. For me, I made do with three of Angkor’s big-hitters.
