Apsaras are like nymph like creatures during the Khmer kingdom. Probably courtesans of the king’s palace. Chosen for their beauty and skill to dance.
The Angkor Wat was first a city built by the early Khmer Kings for its citizens in the 12th Century. All the early Khmer cities had the temples in the centre and Angkor Wat is probably the most well preserved as well as being the largest. It lays claim as the largest religious building in the world. This image was photographed at the first of two levels from the inner wall of the temple itself. The five towers is over 75 meters from the bottom of the stairs.
