Mystical Angkor

November 7, 2011

So many temples dot the landscape of Asia that I thought I'd seen it all, that I was completely "templed out". Accordingly, I didn't raise my expectations ahead of visiting Cambodia's Angkor Wat. But I was wrong. The ancient temples of Angkor are astonishing. I was overcome by a sense of child-like wonder, totally in awe that such a place could exist on Earth. I consider myself fortunate to have visited in the height of the rainy season, when few tourists are around and nature is at its most vivid, adding an extra layer of mysticism to a place that is already as mystical as any. While pictures cannot adequately express the feeling of being submerged in the jungle amongst the ruins, I hope they provide some clue. Please have a look and leave a comment!
