Photographer's Note

Angkor Wat is the world's largest religious monument. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's priime attraction for visitors. It is a Hindu Temple turned into Buddhist. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology: within a moat and an outer wall 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) long are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next.
