    Angkor Wat Windows

    by muddybok Updated Feb 16, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not all windows at Angkor Wat are so well kept like this, and some windows are very much beyond repair and were sealed with cement panels to ensure the safety of the tourists.

    Bayon, smiling faces

    by chrisvandenbroucke Updated May 16, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, I'll never forget the more than 200 smiling faces in the Bayon Temple.
    They're as mysterious as the Mona Lisa painting... you can keep looking at them forever.

    Angkor Wat: dancing apsaras

    by chrisvandenbroucke Updated May 16, 2004

    Another lovely detail of the reliefs. The apsaras are dancing.
    Don't try this at home. You'll end in hospital.

    Angkor Wat: wonderful

    Angkor Wat: outer reliefs

    by chrisvandenbroucke Updated May 16, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The outer walls of the main Temple of Angkor Wat (400 m each side), are richly decorated with wonderful reliefs.

    This is a detail of the lovely apsaras (singing and dancing goddesses).

    On top of Angkor III

    And when you are as far up as you can go, you still must look UP again at the stunning details of the Angkor complex.

    Once at the top the view out over the Angor Wat complex and the surrounding area is spectacular! The climb looks scarier than it is -- so don't miss this!

    Under Angkor's Porches III

    by shrimp56 Updated Jan 6, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of the many depictions of the Apsara, or "angels" that you will find in the Angkor area temples. There are over 2000 of them at Angkor Wat alone!

    Just a beautiful detail of the temple's structure. You could miss these since the bas reliefs are so enthralling -- but don't!

    The back of Angkor Wat as the sun starts the day!

    by shrimp56 Updated Jan 6, 2004

    We made it all the way around to the back of Angkor Wat still in the golden early morning light. We could see yet another temple complex down a road -- but there wasn't time :(

    The main causeway as the sun is rising

    by shrimp56 Updated Jan 6, 2004

    Another reason to get there early is to beat the worst of the heat and the worst of the crowds. In the case of the heat it's relative!

    Don't miss the sunrise!

    by shrimp56 Updated Jan 6, 2004

    It's EARLY, but worth it! You join a group of people perched on a ledge on the first building -- and you just sit and wait and watch. People are pretty quiet -- and it's just magic!

    They have installed a metal handrail on one of the sets of stairs that reach the third level. It looks scarier than it is -- as long as you go carefully and don't look down!

    The libraries

    by ukirsari Updated Sep 26, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After we pass the gateway of Angkor, you can find 2 libraries, one side each. And sometimes we can find the monks are standing there.

    The main gate to Angkor Wat

    by ukirsari Updated Sep 26, 2003

    Artificial lake with ruinous main gate to Angkor Wat. A mystical and magical feelings just calling me to visit the mighty Khmer Empire in the past centuries.
