Pictures from the Temples of Angkor in Cambodia

Pictures from the legendary temples of Angkor in Cambodia

Often considered to be the Eighth Wonder of the World, the magnificent Temples of Angkor are arguably the most impressive temples in the world. Though Angkor Wat gets most of the glory, the Angkor Temple Complex actually stretches over 75 square kilometres and includes hundreds of archaeological sites, abandoned cities and temple ruins.

Below is a collection of some of our favourite pictures of “the other temples” in the Angkor Temple Complex.

Hundreds of years of jungle growth and erosion have consumed many of the archaic buildings

It was a difficult task deciding which photos to include in this post. With over 500 photos to choose from, we had to make some tough decisions but will definitely put together more posts with pictures from our trip to the lost city of Angkor.

We deliberately excluded photos from the iconic Angkor Wat temple because we wanted to highlight some of the other incredible archeological sites in the Angkor Temple Complex.
