Photographer's Note

Another view of the Prasat Kravan temple located in the ancient Angkor Wat complex. This was built as a Hindu temple with many depictions of Vishnu in the form of bas reliefs in the interiors of the five temples. It is reported as being built in 921 AD. This temple is unique in being built almost entirely from brick. This site underwent extensive restoration during the 1960's.

The area that I am standing on when I photographed this is a raised foundation for a larger building that is thought to have been a library. It may have been constructed mostly from wood as little remains of this structure today.
