Thommanom, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Thommanom is one of the first few temples we visited, and it was very understated (I can’t think of another word for it). It wasn’t grand like the Angkor Wat, or labyrinthine like Ta Prohm…it was laid out quite simply, with a few low-standing structures and steps which are humble compared to the stairways-to-heaven that other temples had.

I liked it, though. Maybe it was the novelty of the temples, or maybe there was just something about it being so small and disregarded that made me like it.

And of course we took this opportunity to pose as statues (this is one of the few pedestals that weren’t too high that we’d be dead if we fell off)
