The best of the rest

This devata at Prasat Chrung is in danger of being strangled by a fig tree sometime soon
Coming soon... continuing my cycle ride along the walls of the immense city of Angkor Thom, I came to my favourite of the four shrines that occupy the four corners of this ancient city. The northeast Prasat Chrung is well worth a visit, even if you are not thinking of copying my 4 hour cycle ride along the whole length of the city walls. It's in a lovely quiet spot, with just birdcalls for company, and the presence of a fig tree strangling the life out of the temple with its all enveloping roots. There are carvings galore to explore and this is a temple where you will definitely be alone. More soon.
