The next Angkor temple visited is a actually two temples that are pretty close to each other. The large temple, Baphuon, is an 11th century Hindu temple. Being not crowded it was a nice relaxing temple to visit. There isn’t much to it but it is impressive because it is large and in seemingly good condition for its age. If you visit beware that it isn’t as heavily guarded as some of the others and there were men posing as officials who will try to get you to pay for “extra” viewing options…like a dead alligator skull I think? It is bizarre so just be aware.
After my visit I walk a small shaded path to a smaller temple. There are some fun trees growing over the bricks in the path.
The next temple Phimeanakas, is not accessible but it is nice to look at.
From the temple it is another short walk to the Terrace of Elephants. For some reason I didn’t actually get a photo of the elephants along the side.
Heading back to my tuk tuk I found a very cheeky monkey hanging out on someone’s motorcycle.
