Photographer's Note

The temple of Ta keo was constructed in a Khleang style while Jayavarman V was the Emperor of Angkor. His reign was from 968 until 1001. The ruler’s religious belief was Shaivism. This sect of Hinduism believes Shiva is the Supreme Being. The dominant features of this terraced, sandstone structure are five large towers. The tallest one in the center of the step pyramid reaches a height of 72 feet. This quincunx represents the five peaks of Mount Meru. In mythology, this holy place is said to measure over 670,000 miles. Source : https://www.encirclephotos.com/gallery/angkor-wat-cambodia/
