I can’t remember the temple name, I’ll add it once I have a chance to go through my photos and organize them. The temple is in the Angkor park area, which includes: Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm (which is famous for the banyans growing over the temple) and many more.
Sewu temple is the second largest Buddhist temple in Indonesia, Borobudur is the largest. The Sewa temple is located in the Prambanan temple complex in Yogyakarta, Indonesia (about 1 km away from Prambanan temple). They are rebuilding many of the temples on the site which now lie in ruins.
Candi Sewu was likely built in the 8th century as the royal palace at the end of the Rakai Panangkaran kingdom.
Borobudur is an amazing Buddhist temple built in the 9th century. This site is well worth a visit. It is located outside Yogyakarta, Java, Indonesia. I have posted more photos and a video from my visit to the Borobudur Buddhist temple site, which is a world heritage site.
Borobudur includes 504 Buddha statues. I didn’t notice the bat in this photo, when I was visiting.
I did notice this lizard.
Banteay Srei temple, Cambodia. The temple is an another amazing temple in the vicinity of Siem Reap, Cambodia. Banteay Srei is fairly small, but I was definitely very glad I took a day trip (1/2 day really) from Siem Reap to here and Kbal Spean.
Close up detail of Starry Night Over The Rhone by Vincent van Gogh at the Dreams and Reality Exhibit at the Singapore Art Museum. The Museum D’Orsay in Paris, France provided the exhibit from their collection.
From the Met’s Egyptian collection.
Dinosaur National Monument in Utah is isolated, and while the scenery is nice, it isn’t what I would call spectacular. You can spot fossilized dinosaur bones which are amazing in fact, but almost undetectable within the surroundings.
They are about to open up a visitor’s center which might have some nice exhibits (it wasn’t open when I went).
