Angkor: Temples And What Nots

Angkor Wat is one of the places that I really want to visit. My curiosity was piqued when I heard a rumor that they will close down the UNESCO World Heritage Site to the public. I swore to myself that I will visit the place before this will happen. I was fortunate enough to visit the Angkor Wat twice. I was excited when I first set foot on Cambodia way back in 2010 and I still am excited on my second visit to the country. The place still amazes me. Below are some of the pictures I took of the Angkor Wat and the surrounding temples.

Ta Som is a small temple built by King Jayavarman VII to honor his father.

One of the ponds that surrounds the Neak Pean Temple (The Coiled Serpent). You can’t get any closer since the area is fenced.
