Cambodia Day 2 – Preah Khan

2 Apr

This is part of my adventures in Cambodia, if you would like to see other entries in this series, please click here.

Preah Khan was huge – not as big as Angkor Wat, but still a large blob on the map that we were carrying around.  Li had done his research and requested that the tuk tuk driver meet us at the other side of the complex and so as the afternoon light started to fade, we entered down the long walkway.  Once again we were lucky with our timing and the number of tourists was few – we were able to ramble at will.

Preah Khan seemed more like a city than a single temple – the walkways were wide and many different buildings (and fewer steps) were in the complex.  Parts of the complex had been restored and other parts were wild and because of that contrast it seemed as if we may see an ancient priest come from around the corner or workers building and repairing around another one.

One of the special things about this complex was there was one building that looked like a Greek temple, rounded columns instead of the square ones found in other places we visited.

I have hundreds of photos from that afternoon.  These are some of my favorite shots.
