Wordless Wednesday #17 Rubbles of Angkor



I had been to Angkor Wat 3 or 4 years ago, and still, I am in awe of the temples. There is some kind of mystery enveloping the whole complex. Too bad that despite efforts of the Cambodian government to restore this world treasure, still there are many people who steal these precious artifacts, and, in effect, destroying it. The photo above shows the extent destruction and also shows how far the Cambodian government needs to go to fully protect its national heritage.

This is an amazing image. It is indeed a shame that people steal artifacts. Before long, there will be nothing left from which to assemble a story. I hope there is a transformation here soon.
