We head further out through rural countryside to the small but beautiful temple of Banteay Srei. This temple is largely built of pink sandstone, a harder rock that can be more elaborately carved and better survives the rigors of time. This is an opportunity to capture some good photographs of the clear and detailed carvings. Continue to Banteay Samre: Its rose-colored sandstone walls are decorated with carvings and bas-reliefs, which are among the most accomplished Angkor has to offer.
We visit Ta Prohm ‘Tomb Raider’ fame. Ta Prohm has been abandoned to the elements, a reminder that while empires rise and fall, the riotous power of nature marches on, oblivious to the dramas of human history. Left as it was ‘discovered’ by French explorer Henri Mouhout in 1860, the tentacle-like tree roots here are slowly strangling the surviving stones, man first conquering nature to create, nature later conquering man to destroy.
Welcome dinner with Apsara Dance show at local restaurant.
For those travelers thirsting for cultural highlights of Cambodia, No visit to Cambodia is complete without attending at least one traditional Khmer dance performance, often referred to as “Apsara Dance” after one of the most popular Classical dance pieces. Traditional Khmer dance better described as “dance-drama” in that the dances are not merely dance but also meant to convey a story or message.
After breakfast, we begin to visit:
The ancient capital of Angkor Thom (12th century) See the South Gate, Bayon Temple – unique for its 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara Baphuon temple lying just to the north of Bayon a pyramidal representation of mythical Mont Meru We step to see our old palace as Phimeankas temple in huge complex that was used for our king in the past time.
