In a Row

Another picture taken at one of the amazing temples in Cambodia. I know there have been a lot of these lately, but I’m working on a paper related to Cambodia right now, so I’ve been going back through all of the pictures, and they never cease to amaze me. They have lasted so long, and I feel like they have so much to tell us. The memories one has from visiting a place like this, they are the kind of memories you will cherish for the rest of your life. Needless to say I think that these temples are SERIOUSLY worth taking a look at.

Protectors

I don’t know if this is the actual purpose they served, or if they even served one at all, but when I saw these as a kid I remember thinking that they looked like they were guarding the pathway that they lined up next to. As you can see from this, and the previous posts, Cambodia has so SERIOUSLY cool, very old, art and architecture. Again, i’m an archaeology dork, but I don’t think you have to be to appreciate the incredible nature of a site like this. You don’t even need to know anything about it, just looking at it should result in every bystander being in awe. But, I would recommend knowing some stuff about it; either bring your own book on Cambodian temples or buy one there. I was there when I was 15, so in like 2005, and I’m sure things have changed since then, but we were able to get a very helpful book about the temples while we were there. My family is super curious, so we always like to know what we are looking at, but like I said these temples are amazing either way 🙂
