Massive Buddha Heads

Buddha Head

Buddha Head

The second temple we visited was Ankor Thom the temple of the massive Buddha heads. There were originally 54 towers with four heads each; 37 towers remain. The heads range in size from 3 to 4.5 meters.

We reached this temple in the very early afternoon. Already I was feeling the effects of the high heat and humidity so had a difficult time enjoying myself. I was constantly stopping to wipe of the sweat and just sit in a shady spot for a few moments relief. As a result, I didn’t capture as many photos as is my norm for such a spectacular creation. We probably should have visited it again like we did for Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm but there are only so many hours available in the day.
