Why is Angkor Wat a Wonder of the World?

Takes My Breath Away

I’ve traveled all over the world and some sights just take my breath away.  They aren't all World Wonders or World Heritage sites, sometimes it’s a simple sunset over a rice field in Bali.  And sometimes it is something truly magical and mysterious like Angkor Wat.  It’s amazing to me that the place is in such good shape considering how ancient it is.  

Looking at the place I can almost feel the pomp and luxury of the time it was built.  It’s said to surpass the grandeur of the Pharaohs, pyramids, and the Taj Mahal.  I think I may agree!

I Can't Wait To See It Again

Angkor Wat was built in the first half of the 12th century  and estimated construction time of the temple is 30 years.  King Suryavarman II dedicated to Vishnu.  It is an architectural masterpiece, one of the finest in the world and I can hardly wait to see it again this November. 

If you want to see it too, don’t hesitate to contact me about the trip I’m planning in November with Dr. Edward Viljoen, author of The Power of Meditation.  Just use the contact form on this blog and I’ll get right back to you with details.
