Cambodia Snapshots: Tales on Stone


All Around Cambodia, Cambodia Snapshots, Siem Reap / Monday, April 1st, 2013

After a long absence, I figured I should drop something gorgeous here. To make it up for being a lazy blogger. For this week’s Cambodia Snapshots entry, I have a close snap of one of the bas reliefs inside Bayon Temple in Siem Reap. This is by far my favorite temple there. It’s unusual, its massive. And I’m particularly impressed with these reliefs. They are literally tales set on stone.

If you have an interest in history and what went on during the Khmer empire era, you’d get hooked staring at these beautifully carved images depicting epic battles and on some walls, the daily lives of Khmers during the Angkorian era.
