Isko kata lage na kankar,
rann me Rudra, gharon me Shankar.
Anth yahi sabh vighno ka,
is bhole ka vaar bhayankar.
Wahi shunya hai Wahi ekay,
jiske bhitar basa Shivay.

Angkor Wat - the most popular iconic temple of Cambodia. It is one of the largest religious monuments in the world, on a site measuring 162.6 hectares. It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire, gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century. Built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century in Yaśodharapura.
With so much history, this is a must visit place when visiting Cambodia 🇰🇭 Shot with lumix GH5 @lumixnz

Love finding all the little details 🔎
Went on a boat tour to explore temples and wats in Ayutthaya.
Despite not being allowed to take photos with a Buddha statue or inside a temple, a local man offered to take a picture of me with both of these things. He proceeded to take the most unflattering photos and then dropped my phone 🙈
