Angkor Wat is one of the best known ancient temples in Southeast Asia, probably because it is a masterpiece from an architectural point of view. Once inside the massive walls of the temple, the visitor can also admire all the details that ornament the many parts of the monuments, especially the Apsaras, those dancing nymphs whose enigmatic smiles carved on the walls enhance the mysterious atmosphere of the place.
Asparas are celestial dancers who arose from the Churning of the Ocean of
Milk, whose story is commemorated on an impressive bas-relief which is on Angkor Wat huge walls. Apart from the Apsara, this sculpture is made of intricate floral designs which cover the stone-work and delicate motifs that were thoroughly carved by our artisans in order to reproduce faithfully the style of the temple.
