Cambodia: Temple and Its Killer

 
This is a struggle between Temple and the Jungle.
The place of action is Cambodia, time—our days.
Initially the Temple was winning.

The Temple inclined the tree, and the tree lost its balance, broke, and fell. But a son of the tree wrapped the Temple with his strong, young legs, and gradually began to break the backbone of the Temple.

People of Cambodia help to the Temple. They cut down trees, but with this, the Temple loses a big part of its unique look: the Temple and its killer.

    1. Hi Shiv.
      Yes I have.
      Make Angkor Wat your last point. There are so many tourists every day.
      Visit every of these temples – Beng Mealea, Ta Keo, Ta Phrom, and Bayon – at sunrise to be first and alone with a temple.

  1. Wow!!! The temple is still gorgeous, despite being ‘beaten’ by plants. I hope I can visit Cambodia and nearby Asian countries in the future! Great photos, by the way.
