Tomb Rider in Angkor Wat

The world’s largest archaeological Religious site.

It is pretty incredible that it was built over a thousand years ago. It is all made of huge, heavy blocks of sandstone.

It attracts about 2.5 million visitors a year which makes it on average about 5,000 people a day coming from all over the world! These are impressive numbers indeed.

A couple weeks ago we were among those thousand visitors trooping up to the lost city of Angkor Wat. Our dedicated tuk tuk driver picked us up at 5 am so that we could see the sunrise.

The whole visit was magical. We only visited the main temples: Bayon, Ta Prohm and Angkor Wat.

Finally I made it through the over 200 pictures I took. I was taking shots of everything, from every angle. I could have competed with one of the eager Japanese tourist. I manage to pick about sixty photos that were really worth it. However, these photos do not do justice to the majesty of the temples of Angkor Wat.
