The Many Temples of Angkor in Siem Reap Cambodia

Originally posted on March 26, 2010 during my Big Trip to Southeast Asia

In this post I am choosing to post some pictures instead of going into long descriptions of the various temples I saw during my two days touring Angkor. The common belief is that Angkor is just Angkor Wat, but that’s just one of the many temples in the area. Here’s a link to the Wikipedia article on Angkor for all the good history stuff and following are some cool pictures.

The temples rank right up there with the pyramids for history and awe in my book. I highly recommend visiting them at least once in a lifetime.
