If a picture paints a thousand words, it would still be not enough to describe the grandeur of the Angkor Wat temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Though the pictures I’ve seen of it doesn’t entice me at all, it has always been on the lists as a must place to visit of every travel enthusiasts – that was the reason I wanted to go there. And so I did… and it is awesome. Built in 12th century this structure is known as the largest religious monument in the world and considered as the powerful symbol of Cambodia. It’s hard to imagine how the ancient people put up this massive temple. It’s like a small city made of rocks… a giant building-blocks puzzle of rocks. Now I understand the said lists. These photos I took won’t give you the amazing wonderment I felt while stepping on those enormous rocks and being there.
