Day 152: Some more Angkor
Today is my third day to explore Angkor.

Firstly I want to take a bicycle to get there as only one group of temples left, it was around 13 km one way and not much else to do today. I have read that bike renting is about 1$/day and no passport needed. But in reality good bike is at least 4$ and they require to leave passport.

Last one is a big no-no for me after few years ago one hotel took my passport "to make a copy" and refused giving it back till I pay them for stay strictly in cash (though in my reservation it was possible to pay card and i got not enough cash with closest ATM in 6 km). Later they returned it damped.

So i gave up the idea if biking and hire tuktuk for a day. Later i never regret it as the roads were very dusty.

The last temples were ok,  but nothing super exciting, to be true. So to finish my Angkor visit i decided to revisit my favourite Temple - Ta Prohm. Also many people call it "Tomb rider" temple as the movie was filmed here. It was good idea, as second i time i loved it even more.

E ainda é possível que eu esteja esquecendo de algo rsrs
Muito obrigada ao @parkhyatt_siemreap que apoiou a nossa hospedagem e nos recebeu em Siem Reap com muito carinho e luxo! E não posso deixar de mencionar que ficamos apaixonados e encantados com a piscina privada do nosso quarto que foi a cereja do bolo desta experiência tão linda! 😍😍

Leaving this calm oasis 🌴🌴 @belmondresidenceangkor We've had the best stay ever ☀️ #cambodia

The Gallery of a Thousand Gods (Preah Poan) in the central complex of Angkor Wat temple. Before the civil war, there were hundreds of Buddha statues in this gallery, but many were removed or stolen especially after the war by art thieves working out of neighbouring Thailand, leaving just these few. Even then some of the statues that were left behind had their heads taken. It's sad but at least there are these few left for us to marvel at.

I'm home from Asia but here's the thing: with a 12-hour time difference (or 11 or 13 - there was a time change and I haven't worked it out yet, nor do I plan to) it will take me approx 12 days to recover from jet lag. So I'm perfectly justified in posting a monkey at a temple in Angkor shot, and also in posting Asia shots for the next several days as clearly, the essence of my soul is still there. Because that's what jet lag is. A lagging essence of soul. #sciencefacts

The temple's foundation stela has provided considerable information about the history and administraktion of the site: the main image, of the bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara in the form of the king's father, was dedicated in 1191 (the king's mother had earlier been commemorated in the same way at Ta Prohm). 430 other deities also had shrines on the site, each of which received an allotment of food, clothing, perfume and even mosquito nets;the temple's wealth included gold, silver, gems, 112,300 pearls and a cow withgilded horns. The institution combined the roles of city, temple and Buddhist university: there were 97,840 attendants and servants, including 1000 dancers and 1000 teachers. .

Angkor Wat is fast becoming a bucket list destination in Southeast Asia, with its picturesque views (especially during unrise and sunset) and wide range of temples it houses. It also serves as the focal point of Cambodia’s Hindu faith, providing a rich cultural history. Given that this year is the 50th year of ASEAN, make sure to include this one in your must-see destinations this 2017!
