Amazing Angkor Wat

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 29 April 2008 | Views [677] | Comments [1]

On April 26 we both fulfilled a lifelong dream by visiting the mother of all temples “Angkor Wat”. The feeling of awe you get in that first moment when you walk through the outer wall and view the magestic and massive temple for the first time is indescribable. To think that this was created at all,at any time in history is an incredible feat, but when you know it was constructed over a thousand years ago by hand is almost incomprehensible. Angkor Wat is something that needs to be savoured. You could spend a life time exploring it and still notice something different each time. The sheer size of it alone means that it takes quite a long time to explore. The intricacies of the carvings and building work leave you almost in disbelief that it could possibly have been constructed by humans so long ago. Some of the other temples in the surrounding countryside give you the same feeling. We have seen about 20 in the last few days and they are all absolutely unique and equally magnificent in their own way. It is absolutely deserved that this place is on the “wonders of the world” list. We are both so thrilled to be a part of it at last and our admiration and awe of Cambodia and its people grows more and more everyday. These are truly a remarkable race. We really are falling in love with this fragile but beautiful country.
