‘Angkor - The lions of Pre Rup’

I fully realize that these sunset pictures aren’t of the best quality.
Hopefully they convey something of the atmosphere to you.

Pre Rup is a Hindu temple in Angkor and was built as the state temple of the Khmer King Rajendravarman.
The construction of brick, laterite and sandstone was dedicated as a temple in 961.

The structure represents the five peaks of the sacred Mount Meru of Hindu cosmology.
Each platform of the temple is guarded by lions.
