Photographer's Note

Some believe that Angkor Wat should be in the list of Seven Wonders of the World. Located in the North Western part of Cambodia(Khmer Civilization), this humankind's one of the most astonishing and enduring architectural achievement was built in the 12th century by Khmer King Suryavarman II as his state temple and capital city. First it was dedicated to Hindu god Vishnu and then became a Buddhist temple which continues to the present day. One of the spectacular scenes here is the Sunrise at the backdrop of Temple. If you can be there around 5am in the morning such breathtaking view can be captured.
