Ancient Angkor Temples

The Angkor Temple Complex is the biggest in the world. From the 800 until 1400, the Khmer Empire thrived – constructing hundreds of powerful temples, waterways and cities. The rishis and sages once walked this land, blessing the Earth with the healing power of mantra. The temples are spiritual vortexes, constructed along lay lines with perfect measurements and aligned with the cosmos. Spend unforgettable moments lost in eternity at the foot of these stone megaliths. You can’t help but feel the magic in the air!
