Travel Photo: A different Angkor Wat

Generally, when we see pictures of Angkor Wat, it is the front of the temple we see. And mostly the front during sunrise and sunset and its reflections in the pond in front of the temple. But, that is the not the end of this historical wonder. This massive temple offers a lot to the interested explorer. It has size, its has girth, it has intricate carvings, it has stories, it is important to both Hindus and Buddhists and finally it has a stamp of authority.

Steep flight of steps to the 3rd level of Angkor Wat, Cambodia
While I was there at Angkor Wat recently for the second time this year as part of an invite from the Tourism Authority of Thailand and Ministry of Tourism of Cambodia, I took this shot while waiting for my team members to climb down from the top level of Angkor Wat. This photo is taken from the west side and highlights the 3 levels of this tall temple. The steep stairs are also an interesting experience. I think tnhe West side an especially the view of the 3 levels of Angkor Wat offer a very interesting perspective to the traveller looking to explore Cambodia’s top tourist attraction.
