From entrance to center, Angkor Wat consists of a moat, a main gate, a grassy field with two pools (the first two photos in this collection were taken from the north pool), a lower gallery running all around the main building, a middle gallery with four courtyard pools, and the five towers. The lower gallery is covered in bas-relief carvings to a height of six feet, covering over 600 yards of wall. They depict various religious and historical epics.
Again, photos don’t do the walls justice; you have to walk along and *see* the elaborate carvings covering the length of a football field. I’ve picked out some details. Click for the larger photos; the thumbnails are hard to see.
