Angkor was the capital of the Khmer empire
The empire existed from 657 to 1462
Buddhist monks at Angkor Wat

The complex was massive
Valley between stone structures
Most of the buildings and walls were covered in carvings
Many had been vandalised
Some were still in great shape
A doorway to enlightenment?
Its good when the elephants are careful
The moat
This complex had a historical mural engraved all around its wall
Many of the towers had four grinning faces looking to the four directions
Alters were to be found
The jungle conquers all
