Pre Rup at Sunset

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Ryan Friese

Pre Rup temple was constructed by the Khmer Empire during the Angkorian period in Cambodia. The beautiful rusty-red hue of the laterite and brick used to build Pre Rup is accentuated during sunset and stands in brilliant contrast to the lush green of the jungle in the distance.

Location: Angkor, Cambodia
