Temples of Angkor (Siem Reap, Cambodia)

What a sight, what a sight. You really have to go there to fully appreciate the beauty of these age old temples.

Angkor  Thom (aka Tomb Raider temple)

Bayon Temple (probably my favorite one)

Last but not least..Angkor Wat

The symmetry in this place is unbelievable

Love this picture
By the way, the area in front of the monks use to be filled with water  and was a pool when Angkor Wat was still in use

My tour group woke up at 4:30 am to go to Angkor Wat to catch the sunrise. Unfortunately there was no sun! The sky
just turned blue. However about an hour later we finally got a little glimpse of the sun. It was still very beautiful.
