Preah Vihear Province in Pictures

My journey into a jungle to Preah Khan, a temple dedicated to King Jayavarman VII. From Phnom Penh to Tbeng Mean Chey, provincial captial of Preah Vihear province.

Leaving the Cambodian capital city, I visited, for the first time, some of the most mysterious ancient temples, built in the pre-Angkorian period in Preah Vihear province. Geographically this temple is located in the northeast of Angkor Thom.

Taken with traditional film camera, SRL Nikon F75.
