Who has not heard of the ancient Angkor civilization? Beginning about the 9th century, the Angkor left their legacy with carvings on their temple walls. The carvings told stories of kings, battles, and everyday life of the Angkor. While the wooden structures of the various Khmer regimes have not survived, many of the stone temples are still standing today. Our limited time in Cambodia was spent in the area of Siem Reap, which was centrally located to many of the ancient temples.
