Angkor Night

Angkor Night

A journey to Cambodia, amidst the fascinating ruins of Angkor, the 12th century city of temples consecrated to Vishnu and which belonged to the Khmer Empire. After the decline of its inhabitants, from the 15th century, Angkor was abandoned and given over to oblivion. For four
hundred years the luxuriant tropical vegetation devoured it and transformed it. When the French
explorer Henri Mouhot rediscovered it in 1860, Angkor was a fascinating and indissoluble tangle of architecture and nature. Angkor night is the long, magical and mysterious night of Angkor.
