This is our 2nd days at Angkor Wat. That’s day is cloudy and it’s consider good for out door photographing.
The 1st temple we visited was Pre Rup temple. It was built in middle of the 10th Century 961. Pre Rup imposing brick towers dominate the surrounding. It made out with colour laterite, bricks and standstones.

Lunch at East Mebon Then we had our lunch nearby East Mebon. We did bought some breads as the foods selling nearby the temples are expensive.

After that we did pass by Prasat Ta Sam, then we when to Neak Pean. Neak Pean is a man made island temple. It has four great rivers issuing waters thru the mouth’s sculpture of Lion, Elephant, OX and Horse. It's an interesting place to hang out.
