Photo Friday: Sunrise at Angkor Wat

Photo Friday: Sunrise at Angkor Wat

In light of a holy theme at Zip Set Go’s Travelers’ Night In this week, I thought a good idea for photo Friday would be the world’s largest religious monument, Angkor Wat.

Attracting visitors from all over the world to what is basically a city in itself, Angkor Wat is located just outside of Siem Reap in Cambodia. Staying out of the debates over how much time one would need at this monument or the best time of day to see it, here is just one photo of the great place in all its glory.

This photo was taken just after 6 a.m. on a weekday in May 2011. We arrived about 30 minutes prior to sunset and the best seats in the the house were already almost filled. Here you can see dawn breaking over Angkor Wat and the scene’s reflection in a small pond to the left of the front of it.

The sight is well worth the early wake up call.
