How beautiful. I can't even imagine how they were able to carve something so large so long ago.

So nice to see Khmer sculptures again. We wanted to go to Angkor when we were in Cambodia but there was a military coup and it wasn't safe to travel. Lucky you to see them in person. Thanks for stopping by. Jane
