Picture of the Day: The Sea of Siem Riep

This picture was taken at West Baray, Siem Riep. The largest manmade reservoir of the ancient Khmers, the West Baray measures 8km by 2.1km. The lake construction project was started by King Suryavarman I (reigned 1001-1050) and completed by King Udayadityavarman II (reigned 1050-1066).

It looks just like the Sea of Kompong Som. So huge that I could hardly believe it was built 1000 years ago. And I have to agree it 's one of the greatest archivements of the Angkor Empire.

    Oh Lord, the annoying spam ads have finally made a triumpt comeback. I thought blocking anonymous comments would do the trick. But it only worked out for a short time, and now they return under the blogger's accounts.


    Gotta say:" Welcome back. You did it!"

    Seserak, turn on Word Verification in SETTING to filter them. Those are the funny random characters allow them to type individually before they can post.

    On your Blog tabs, there are:
