WPC – Ascend To Next Level

This week’s photo challenge asked us to show about Ascend, a photo that contains interpretation of upward movement and for that theme, I submit a photo in a part of Angkor Wat.

Monks At Angkor Wat

Monks At Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat, is the most famous temple in the Angkor Archaeological Park, the UNESCO World Heritage Site around 7 km north of Siem Reap, Cambodia. With 1 km length for the temple wall each side, Angkor Wat becomes the largest religious monument in the world. Originally constructed as a Hindu temple, dedicated to Vishnu, but then gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple around 12th century.

At the time I visited the temple, I had the chance to capture the monks with yellow robes who ascended the stairs into the temple’s gallery. A question was raised in my mind. Were they ascending to the next level of their faith after visiting the temple or was that only a temple tour?
