    Under Angkor's Porches II

    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!

    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

    The main causeway

    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!

    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!

    On top of Angkor I

    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!

    @rie @ the library by Elizabeth Kristanti

    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 by ukirsari

    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.

    The Wat

    Once you are there you will go arround and see the ruins. Don't forget to take your time and dont just run arround and so you will see the details as well.

    To the top

    Up

    You should climb up as high as possible, it's amazing up there. Going down is worse then climbing up, but not too bad (there are rails).

    Angkor courtyard

    This is the main Angkor temple. This is the first thing people see. It is a large complex, and there is a long pathway to the temple.

    Sunrise at Angkor Wat

    Angkor in the morning

    Get up early to join the throngs of people for sunrise. It is worth it. Even though everyone else is thinking the same thing!

    Angkor Wat covers an area of two square kilometres which is the largest religious temple in the world. And the volume of stone equal that of the Great Pyramid in Egypt.
