Cambodia - Angkor Thom by lux69aeterna Cambodia - Angkor Thom by lux69aeterna
This photograph was taken at the entrance of Angkor Thom near the city Siem Reap, Cambodia. On most gates there is a row of 54 demons on one side and 54 Gods on the other. It's a motif taken from the story of the "Churning of the ocean of milk".

The city of Angkor Thom (Great Angkor or Great City) has an epic scale of 10 km˛ and was built by Angkor's greatest king, Jayavarman VII (1181-1219). At the city's height it may have supported a population of one million people in the surrounding region.

Nikon D300, Nikon 50mm 1.8, tripod.
