4/20/2003--Angkor Wat Temples, Siem Reap, Cambodia ..A carved Vishnu under teh water in Kbal Spean, at the top of the River of 1000 Lingas, a powerful sacred site for Cambodians, even today. Close to a kilometer of living stone lining the stream bed has been sculpted with hundreds of stone lingas (Hindu phallic symbols), a legacy of 9th century God-kings, and a reminder that this forest was an important spiritual center even before Angkor Wat. Downstream, the carvings culminate at the edge of a magnificent waterfall. ...All photographs ©2003 Stuart Isett.All rights reserved.This image may not be reproduced without expressed written permission from Stuart Isett.
