Photographer's Note

A view, very early in the morning, of Ankor wat, teh most famous edifice in the Ankor complex. It is quite impressive and one of the world' most famous sights. Ankor Wat was built for the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple. The initial temple was Hindu in design and direction, and later became a Buddhist temple.
It is worth getting to the temple at 5am for the sunrise, then heading through the jungle through the vast lost city before the tropical heat kicks in by lunchtime. Who am I kidding? It was hot at 5am even!
