Playing Tomb Raider III

Other temples and places in Angkor Archeological Park:

Apart from Angkor Wat, another famous temple complex in Siem Reap is the Angkor Thom. This contains the Bayon Temple famous for the face carvings on each of its towers.
Another landmark in Angkor Thom is the elephant terrace which is primarily a wall with elephant carvings. Here, I am riding a stone elephant.

Here is the entrance to Ta Phrom. This temple somewhat has a mystical beauty because of the trees intertwined with the ruins. This gives a feeling that the ruins also sprouted together with the tres.

How this tree grew this big, with its roots hugging the walls of the temple, only the unfathomable way of nature could explain.

This is the Bantaey Srei, which is a few kilometers from the main Angkor Wat Complex. This is famous for its pinkish color because of the red soil used to built it and the intricate wall carvings around.
