In the Siem Reap Province of Cambodia lies one of the few remaining religious marvels called Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is Khmer for 'temple city' or 'city of temples'. It is in this quaint and picture perfect city of temples that you can get to enjoy the surreal and intoxicating sunrise. Of all the pictures you can take on earth, nothing beats the beauty of the sunrise in Angkor Wat.

Taking in the intoxicating Sunrise at Angkor Wat

In the Siem Reap Province of Cambodia lies one of the few remaining religious marvels called Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is Khmer for 'temple city' or 'city of temples'. It is in this quaint and picture perfect city of temples that you'll get to enjoy the most surreal and intoxicating sunrise. Of all the pictures you can take on earth, nothing beats the beauty of the sunrise in Angkor Wat.

The backdrop of the famous Angkor Wat temple will more than sell you the idea of travelling to this majestic destination just to bask in it's beautiful sunrise. Picture this: the temple is a world heritage center, it was built in 12th century, it has been used by both the Hindus and Buddhists, it features the best of Khmer architectural geniuses, it has been an important religious site since its inception and it is made to depict the residence of Devas in Hindu Vishnu religious mythology. Just by being in Angkor Wat is a great feat to accomplish. Being able to capture the sunrise in this city on camera as well as soak in its radiant rays is perhaps the best thing you will do in your life.

The brilliant sky configurations coupled with the artistic roofing of the temple gives you the feeling that you are in presence of the gods. It gives you the comfortable knowledge that you have been there and done that. The silence and peace of early morning with the soft winds howling around the temple's hallways is the ideal environment for meditation.

You can watch as the monks silently go about their business, preparing for the busy day ahead. Their unhurried strides always reminds the visitors to the Angkor Wat that the world will still live on when they go to the world yonder. It reminds you that waking up alive and being able to enjoy the luxury of living is enough to be thankful for. The presence of deities is unmistakable at Angkor Wat, this place is as close as you will get to feeling religious and Godly.

Remember to say a silent prayer in the temple before you start enjoying the warm sun or taking the pictures. Might be that the gods will look upon you with favor for visiting so early…
