Angkor Wat – not only Cambodia’s but, in fact, the world’s largest temple creation. It amazes visitors with ancient architectural skill and exotic looking facades. People used rocks and stones for religious buildings. Hence, the material allows the temple complex to still stand strong after centuries even though the tropical vegetation and weather left a clear mark on it throughout time.
A Harmonious Creation
The Angkor Wat temple complex is a peaceful place where harmony and balance as one with religious buddhist practices melt together. The temple creation is both romantic and utterly impressive. When the sun rises, the temple glows in red-yellow light that lets it appear even more holy. It is an UNESCO world heritage and represents an earthly model of the cosmic world.
Unrivaled Beauty in Many Ways
Many of the inner walls are decorated with multi-armed statues. Vishnu is a deity protecting the balance between the good and evil on earth. Because of that, it is one of the most worshipped gods.
From wonder into wonder existence opens. – Lao Tzu
The deep-rooted religious and cultural myths magically draw the visitor in. So, there’s unrivaled beauty both in the material and spiritual levels of this sacred place. Chambers, galleries, long hallways, and courtyards are linked by stairs forming a well thought through vast and multi-level complex.
The friendliness of the buddhist monks in Angkor Wat is heartwarming. They have good, pure and absolutely humble souls. Let us only imagine for a moment what it would be like if the world’s foundation was just like their spirit.
Angkor Wat is a peaceful, silent place where traditions and religion find their roots. Far away from the troubles of the planet, this place almost seems like a secluded world in its own. Here, harmony in a beautiful medley of structure and spirit prevails.
