Photographer's Note

Three very happy monks return from a shopping expedition! Taken at Angkor Wat - the world's largest religious building.

Angkor Wat was built for King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. It was dedicated to the god Hindu god Vishnu. In the late 13th century, Angkor Wat gradually moved from Hindu to Theravada Buddhist use, which continues to the present day.
