Angkor Wat is one of the few ancient ruins in the world that has all of the criteria necessary for pure adventuring: a huge compound, multiple styles of architecture, various levels of decay and restoration, a bit of danger thrown in to the mix, and nearly 100% open for touching and climbing.While the last one of the criteria is likely leading to quicker deterioration, the Cambodian government and international community is taking great steps into restoring these 800 year old temples.  Unfortunately, that means scaffolding in photos.  But luckily, that means the ruins will be around for quite some time.

In fact, one of the best parts of visiting Angkor Wat is not only because it is in a beautiful state of ruin, but that nature is slowly reclaiming it.  It is not surprising for one to turn a corner and see a massive 30 meter tall tree rising above the structure with roots cascading down every side.

Like Petra, The Pyramids of Giza, The Great Wall of China and so many fabulous artifacts of history, words are simply at a loss for talking about its brilliance.  So, it should be no surprise that this post is a photo essay of the best temples in the Angkor Wat Complex!
