Cambodia - 😊 Has held a special place in my heart since the 1970's - when I collected books to help this wonderful country move forward - after the tragic events of the Pol Pot era. The journey beyond Angkor reveals many more significant archeological sites - .... Just waiting for you to discover. 😊 this is one of my favourites - a sacred mountain which is a Buddhist Pilgrimage site🤗 home of the mysterious and mythical 'flying rock'. ❤👏👏
🌿 Ta Prohm was the third temple we visited and honestly I was already DYING/melting at this point. There were GIANT TREES with roots crawling through and over the ruins like they had spider legs - which was amaaaaazing and fantastical. There were also a million other people walking about so that stole from the magic a little. This was really the only good photo I managed to get 😂
Thank you @kemlek_cambdesign for taking the photo! 😊 // #templedout#taprohm#cambodia
Ta Prohm y Bayon increíble. Una sorpresa maravillosa. Cambodia es un lugar magnífico con una historia desgarradora. Que bueno ver que poco a poco se reconstruye una sociedad a partir de negocios como el turismo. Ojalá logren sanar sus heridas y nunca mas repetir el terror. #igerscambodia#wonderfull#surprising#wow#ruins#cambodia

Built around the 12th century by the Khmer Empire, the Angkor Wat complex was left abandoned in the 15th century after the capital was moved to Phnom Penh. The "lost city" of Angkor was then rediscovered only at the end of 19th century, time enough for the wild vegetation to take possession of the declined city.
