One Of Many Unforgettable Travel Moments

My Angkor posts are long overdue.

While I struggle to finish my draft between house guests and trips to Bangalore, here is a scene that was the realisation of a longstanding dream.

Sunrise in Angkor Wat 1
Sunrise in Angkor Wat – Siam Reap, Cambodia

As breathtaking and unforgettable as we had imagined, despite the partly cloudy sky and the scaffolding in the center.

Until next time…..happy travels, no matter where life takes you.

  1. Gorgeous! I want to travel sometime in my life time. I hope to see things like this. It will truly make life more livable!

  2. Oh, Madhu, what a magnificent shot! The majesty, the mystery of that temple amplified by its reflection and the sunrise … Do you think this is just what its’ architect envisioned when he designed it just so? I do. And what a thrilling and unforgettable sight it is for us all – especially us, from another civilization.

  3. I’ve never been to Angkor Wat although it’s only a few hours from here. I probably won’t be going to Cambodia soon, for certain reasons, so it’ll be great to read your account of your visit, Madhu. 🙂

  4. Lovely sunrise. A visit to Angkor Wat has been on my wish list for quite some time now and your picture certainly piques my interest for a visit soon.

  5. Serenity in a photo…sunrise at Angkor Wat. The reflection in the water is quite beautiful Madhu. 🙂

  6. I may be commenting twice, because I thought I’d already entered one, Madhu? It bears repeating anyway- unforgettable!

  7. Beautiful. You had a nicer sunrise than I had when I was there. But what a place. The people pictures! Scaffolding I think is a constant at Angkor.

  8. Madhu I think the clouds make the photo and I didn’t even see teh scaffolding until I zoomed in, its stunning and truly memorable.

  9. Angkor Wat is one of the places I have always wanted to go to. I remember reading about it when I was a child in a Readers Digest book.

  10. Great shot! We were there last year in March, 2012 but was not fortunate enough to have a beautiful sunrise. In fact, the much anticipated gorgeous view of Angkor Wat on sunrise never happened, The morning turned out cloudy, overcast. Your photo made up for what we missed.

  11. Ow, I know this one. A friend of mine posted a picture, he doesn’t travel a lot but he has a very awesome picture of this one. I love the reflection on yours.

  12. I can’t wait to read more! I loved Angkor — such a magical place. Beautiful image — love the tree on the left reflected in the water.

  13. I thought all the Angkor temples were unforgettable too, but I never got a picture even remotely as beautiful as this. Great shot, Madhu!

  14. Beautiful Post Madhu great interpretation for this week topic,
    Thanks for sharing my friend 🙂

  15. The colors of the sky are unforgettable. Beautiful.
