Watching the sunrise over Angkor Wat

Watching the sunrise over Angkor Wat in Cambodia was possibly one of the most surreal spiritual enlightenment experiences I have had in my life. My first glimpse of the ancient temple was in the still-dark morning.

Sunrise over Angkor Wat
To my left, I saw the shadowy outlines of the absolutely beautiful architectural feature of Angkor Wat I’d waited for months to see, and to my right, an absolute madhouse–a veritable wall of people with cameras flashing, all waiting to watch the sunrise.

To witness the sun’s rays gently illuminating the temple Angkor Wat was magical and beyond breathtaking. 
To me, it was a reminder that even in the darkest moments you will experience another sunrise.
