Preah Palilay temple, located in Angkor Thom, 400 m north-west of Phimeanakas temple. The coexistence of hindu and buddhist elements and lacking of foundation stele or inscriptions make somewhat difficult dating this temple. It is generally ascribed to Jayavarman VIII reign, but it seems difficult to explain how the buddhist imageries could have survive from the iconoclast fury of that epoch.

lovely black and white picture. It renders in an artfull and delightful way the architecture, textures and atmosphere of the place. Great point of view, and light management. The temple looks beautiful and mysterious. A magnificent and very effective composition. Well done!
All the best,
