I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to be here in Cambodia to visit the Angkor Wat temples. What I didn’t realise is that there is a whole complex of Temples, the place is vast, we have been three times now and have only just scratched the surface. It is truly stunning with images of sacred Hindu and Buddhist deities, my favourite religious iconography, they are so peaceful and contemplative.
The place is still an active centre of worship with golden buddhist shrines and the smell of incense wafting around.
Even amongst the gaggles of clicking tourists there is a timeless beauty and compassion that emanates from the faces that gaze at you. I found a real sense of peace and a feeling of being very small in the larger perspective of things.
