Phnom Chisor

The ruins of a temple constructed roughly a millennium ago. A time scale that is both minuscule and unimaginable at the same time. Thinking of the advances that have been made over my short lifetime, the advances being made a thousand years ago would have been at a much slower pace. How long did the temple builders think this structure would last when designing and building it?

Today it still stands. On a hilltop outside of Phnom Penh. You can walk the grounds and imagine a life that is nearly unimaginable. Where religion would have had a much stronger hold on society than it does today. The ruins are a fascinating vestige to the great Angkorian Empire.
