The bones inside the memorial were a sad reminder that our tour guide’s mother and two brothers had been killed by Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge.  However, he was proud of his heritage, and with the knowledge of an archaeologist, Long  explained the Hindu and Buddhist carvings on the temples around Angkor, including the famous Angkor Wat, built by King SuryaVarman, as well as the 40 temples built by King JayaVarman VII.

I was having problems with my camera on this trip, so I was not able to post photos of all the wonderful temples in the area.

About Łowiczanka

I'm a former dancer who loves all things Polish, especially the music... whether it be folk songs and dances from Poland, or polka music from Chicago. Oh, yes, and I love pierogi !
