“Heaven on Earth”, that’s how the Lonely Planet described Angkor Wat. European cathedrals are “nothing compared to Angkor Wat”. To be honest, I’ve never been a fan of European cathedrals. Nice to look, but once you’ve seen one you’ve seen pretty much all of them. Unless you’re an architect or church-addict and can appreciate the fine details. I made a similar experience with temples in Asia. Nice to visit, but after a while you’ve seen them all.
So I was skeptical about Angkor Wat. Can it be that good as everyone says? Is it really “Heaven on Earth”?
