Angkor Wat is registered with a world heritage of the UNESCO in 1992, and it is a Cambodian symbol now. Angkor Wat is a meaning such as a temple of Angkor dynasty. This big temple took about 30 years to completion in the first half in the twelfth century. Angkor Wat is the thing which is the best in a building of the Angkor dynasty which prospered in about 600. However, it is before about 140 years that this temple was discovered in a surprising thing. Without being known to anyone, it hid quietly till then in the jungle. Based on Khmer original Hinduism, it was made to divinize sovereignty to express "a religious view of the world". A detailed sculpture and space and a design carved in the whole building of Angkor Wat impress people visiting this place.

I photographed this photograph towards the west from a tower of the third gallery. I see steep stairs and Kyodo and the second gallery, the neighboring jungles under eyes.
