I got back yesterday from a trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia to visit the famous temples of ancient Khmer civilization. The UN has designated these temples as a World Heritage Site. It's easy to see why. They are nothing short of incredible. Their scale, sophistication and artistry are off the charts.
I'd like to write more but it's late right now and I'm lazy. I'm going to cheat a little and post a link to Wikipedia's entry for the Angkor temples here. You can view my as-yet untitled photos here. Click on "View album as guest" on the left hand side, then click on "Slideshow" for the best viewing. You can also check out the video below of one of the temples that has been overrun by the jungle. It's over 900 years old. Amazing. (Make sure your sound is up so you can hear the eerie jungle sounds.)
