guarding angkor

    Newer Older

    Luckily, a nice person stepped into the picture to provide a sense of scale at one of the face-tower gates to Angkor Thom.

    The faces on the 23 m towers at the city gates (which are later additions to the main structure) take after those of the Bayon (main temple complex), and pose the same problems of interpretation. They may represent the king himself, the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, guardians of the empire's cardinal points, or some combination of these.

      Hi,
      This is an amazing pic. Seems too good to be true. How I would love to have more of these pics! I liked all your photographs but the ones that were special were 'Guarding Angkor' and a few others similar to this-green and lovely architecture. Keep up the good work! Breathtaking!!
