Great emka 2020-07-01 0:14

Hello Paul, Beautiful view of this temple in the evening light, with the expectation of the sunset. Amusing to see the people sitting there. Have you climbed it also? It reminds me of a similar situation in Birma. I also observed sunset (and sunrise) from the temple, with many other tourists.
Fantastic composition.
For sure, you were lucky that you had so much time for exploring the whole complex. I do not remember how long I was, two or three days. I am looking forward to see the most beautiful for me - Banteay Srei.

Best regards MAlgo

Default To emka: Bagan ?

Thank you Malgo,

Yes, of course I climbed the Pre Rup Temple.
The best places to see the sun setting over the forest were already occupied but the highest platform was large enough to walk around.

I suppose that you mean the temples of Bagan when you write Burma.
There too I cllimbed one of the temples. There the space for visitors was minimal and you had to be careful not to fall off.
That was in 1997. I believe later on people were allowed to climb more temples ...

All the best !
Paul

Hi, Of course, I meant Bagan. I haven't read this post before my comment to your next picture . I was there in 2011.

Hi Malgo,

It's possible that I climbed the same pagoda to see the sunset.
Maybe it was another one. In any case, a place where too many people crowded together in a small space.

All the best !
Paul
