Siem Reap Day 2 Temples of Angkor

Woke up at 4:30 in the morning to see this

Started with Angkor Thom. Out of the temples we visited this one is my favorite! I even rode on an elephant around the temple.

In Angkor Thom, the central temple was called Bayon there are three levels the underworld (outside the temple), the regular world (inside the temple), and heaven (the top floor of the temple). The steps going into the top floor get steeper and narrower. The steps aren’t narrow because the people back then had narrow feet — that was just how they designed back then. They wanted the top of the temple to be hard to climb up.

Warning: It’s very very picture heavy so stay tune for more pictures or feel free to check out my photobucket!
