Angkor Wat, Cambodia 2013

Angkor Wat is the world’s largest temple. It was initially a Hindu temple and then became a Buddhist place of worship. The initial design and construction took place in the first half of the 12th century.

Many books have been written about Angkor Wat and thousands of website exist that tell of every detail of this amazing place. No need to repeat that  here.

Siem Reap, the service town for the ‘industry’ of visiting Angkor Wat, is an extraordinary mix of Asian and Western cultures. It has everything a Western traveller could wish for including kerbside massage chairs, fantastic restaurants, and ATMs that dispense US dollars.

With so many visitors it is nearly impossible to take a photograph without having someone else in it taking a photograph.

There is a massive amount of detail about Angkor Wat available on the Internet. This article is just a record of a moment in time.
