Angkor Wat

Now back from my holiday in Cambodia (where thankfully people are no longer compelled to dress in black.  Also it didn't rain so no need to take a mac).  The temples are amazing, especially the one being overrun by the jungle (of Tomb Raider fame), but Angkor Wat had these great bas-reliefs depicting history and associated wars of the king who built the temnple.

The photos are just from my iPad.  Do a Google search if you want to know more or see better quality, or better still, go and have a holiday in Cambodia.

One thing I did take away was the generals rank is indicated by the number of parasols he has, the more he has the more important he is.


  1. Very nice snaps, glad the lyrics are now old and dated!

    1. Thanks Paul. Other holiday snaps have gone to FaceBook. Siem Reap is a great holiday destination.

  2. Quite an historic site to visit! Angkor Wat is on many's Bucket List.
