Temples of Angkor, Cambodia
The Temples of Angkor are awesome. We visited the 3 main temples, which were built between 802 and 1432. The first temple Angkor Thom is a walled and moated royal city which was the last capital of the Angkorian Empire. Bayon or the Jungle temple has been used in Lara Croft and Indiana Jones, it was my favourite temple. It was built around trees and now the roots are supporting some of the walls and growing on the top. The biggest temple Angkor Wat, is a Hindu temple, the other two are Buddhist. It was a spectacular sight, a really great and awe inspiring day.
