Just when we thought we were all temple and shrined out, we arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia, home of the largest temple complex in the world. It was built over a period of time during more than three centuries, with hundreds of structures occupying a 250 square mile area. We only got to visit a handful of temples and other buildings, and stopped to photograph others, but barely saw one percent of the sprawling ancient kingdom. The photos below will give you some idea of the construction effort, but you will not be able to appreciate the size of some of the towers that reach up to 700 feet (70 story building). Using hand labor, rocks the size of cAngor Thom Gateaskets were piled up and cemented into place, forming endless walls, homes, shrines,and temples.
