Photographer's Note

The grandiose monuments of Angkor Wat & Bayon conceal many hidden gems such as this, which are rarely mentioned, and often overlooked.

Although much smaller & far less conspicuous, they are none the less just as impressive imho as their larger surroundings. I thought I'd share one of my 'discoveries' here. This was from the Hindu 'Angkor Wat' building (1110-1165 ad), & features almost bare breasted Apsara dancers, a forerunner of contemporary Cambodian dancing styles which can still be seen today. Sorry guys, but these days, they cover up!
