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
