Inside Angkor

A look inside the fascinating ancient temple of Angkor Wat, a UNESCO World heritage site in Siem Reap province of Cambodia. It was originally, a Hindu Vishnu temple, which was converted to a Buddhist temple down the ages because the king was converted as the wave of Buddhism spread throughout South East Asia from the Indian peninsula. Murals of the Ramayana & Mahabarata adorn the walls of the aisles of this temple as seen through a doorway in one of these photos, which I have also posted to my 500px site.
