It is difficult to conceptualize Angkor before we get there. Our highest towers in the West are office buildings. We, pragmatic, use temple-architecture for banks. Khmer ancestors didn’t see it like that. Instead, they built hundreds of temples to worship their gods. Leaves and leaves and leaves, leaves curling like shadows, roots over crumbled buildings. Monumental, awesome.
