Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Angkor Wat is part of a temple complex just outside Siem Reap. Angkor Wat is the most well known of the temples and it’s a world heritage site with thousands of visitors every day – and believe me, I felt that. The temple was originally made for hindus, however, today most of Cambodia is buddhist, so, they built buddhist temples within. Incredible stone carvings all over which tell different stories – the most well known depicts how life is on earth, in hell and celebrations in heaven.
