The test of time

  • I’m in the Angkor region of Cambodia, famous for its incredible temples that date back to the 12th century. Todays picture shows the Bayon temple, the first temple in the region that I visited.

    The Bayon temple is made up of several towers that covered in numerous large stone faces. As I walked among the ruins I marvelled at how such an awesome building would have been constructed back in the 12th century.

    I’ve seen a number of beautiful temples in Asia, but to walk among these sprawling temples that have survived the rigors of time, weather, and wars both ancient and modern, is really an amazing experience that is hard to convey in words, let alone a single photograph.
