Visiting Around Cambodia Part-1


Preah Khan was built by Jayavarman VII and was dedicated to his father. It is a large monastic complex and i believe that significant portions of Tomb Raider was filmed there.

Resembles Parthenon of ancient Greece doesn't it?



Collapsed and standing structures after 1000 years

Preah Khan is one of my favourite temples in Angkor Wat as there isn't a lot of people touring the large complex and there are many places which we can explore in the temple. A large portion of the structure is sheltered from the hot sun as well.

Next, we headed back to Angkor Thom as there are still some parts where we have not explored yet. We stopped at the Terrace of the Leper King and walked over to Terrace of the Elephants.
