Photo of the day: Monk visiting Angkor, Cambodia

This young Buddhist monk is taking in the view from the top of Baphuon’s Temple on the Terrace of the Elephants where the Khmer king used to watch performances from.

Today, one can explore the temple and climb up to its top after extensive renovations: archeologists had dismantled it stone by stone, and the records were destroyed during the civil war, leaving a gigantic puzzle to the new generation!

    • Thanks for your comment. After exploring remote temples (Preah Vihear & Preah Khan), we had a hard time appreciating the very touristy Angkor temple complex. But then, we mountain biked it, completely off the beaten path and this was truly fantastic. Articles to be published soon that may bring back some more memories for you!
