Guardian of Mebon

By Flemmingbo

I have written at lengths about our two monk friends Thun and Purt and how they excelled at modeling for me and Nathan Horton in Cambodia. I have such a large collection of images of them I like I am finding it hard to not overload my Cambodia gallery with monk images. I could do a whole gallery on monks. Today I shall present a sunset view of one of the towers of the temple of East Mebon. I think it’s Mebon. Angkor is home to so many splendid temples it becomes hard to place my images. I really must find an arial image to show you, there is no way to describe in words the absolutely massive scale of the town of Angkor. But keep this figure in mind, one million people lived here at one time!


In my next blog post I shall feature a behind the scenes look from Cambodia. Stay tuned.
