Slideshow: Temple Hopping in Angkor

Angkor Archaeological Park

[cycloneslider id=”temple-hopping-siem-reap”]
I have never seen a complex full of massive ancient temples as huge and as awesome as Angkor.
The Angkor Region located northwest of Siem Reap, Cambodia was the seat of the once powerful Khmer Empire that flourished from approximately 9th to 15th centuries. Regarded as Angkor Archaeological Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the 400-square kilometer region houses more than a thousand temples including the legendary Angkor Wat, Bayon, Preah Khan and Ta Phrom. Angkor Wat alone is said to be the world’s largest single religious monument.
In 2012, I had a chance to explore the complex by bike. From sunrise to sundown, it was a whole day of temple hopping. A day full of amazement with the magnificent ancient strutures of Angkor Region.
I have been missing the place terribly… I have been wanting to revisit the place and be amazed once more with the grandeur of Angkor. But until then, this slideshow will fill the longing and will remind me of good times I had in Siem Reap.
