Temples of Cambodia

The area around Siem Reap in Cambodia is chock full of temples from the Khmer civilization, with Angkor Wat winning the popularity contest.  There are plenty of other temples in the area, though, including Angkor Thom and Ta Prohm, both of which were used in the filming of the movie Tomb Raider.    I could easily spout off some historical and/or interesting facts, but quite frankly, you've got Wikipedia if you truly care about the details.  I'll just present a few of my favorite photos so you can (hopefully) go, "Oooh, pretty..." and then read up on them should you feel so inclined.

I know.  I'm no Laura Croft.  I forgot my skintight black leather outfit.  I hate it when I forget to pack that.
