The Pillars

IMG_3699

The pillars were a common theme throughout Angkor Wat. There were typically two layers of pillars creating a corridor between them. Few decorations remain. I imagine in their hey day each was covered top to bottom with carvings as can be seen near the foot of the pillar on the right.

This would have been a great place to play hide and seek.
