Travel Haiku - Angkor Wat Temple (Seam Reap, Cambodia) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Angkor Wat Temple
among the broken pillars
bits and pieces of my curiosities

Angkor Wat Temple
devotees praying to
a headless buddha

Angkor Wat Temple
supporting the perfection
jagged stones

Angkor Wat Temple
above the perfect corridors
jagged stones

Undeniably, Angkor Wat Temple is the most well-known of all Cambodian temples. The entire temple is encircled by a four-foot-wide,570-foot-long moat, and the interior is lined with extensive exquisitely detailed, recently restored bas relief sculptures. It's the country's best-preserved historical site, a prime example of classical Khmer architecture, and has served as a significant religious center for both Hinduism and Buddhism
