Ruins of Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia


Angkor Wat is one of the largest temple complex, built during the 12th century for king Suryavarman II. The place was too big that’s why it took us 2 hours to roam around the area. Many magnificent artifacts, ruins and wall sculptures can be seen. Angkor Wat lies 5.5 km north of the modern town of Siem Reap, Cambodia.

This is The Ruins in Talisay City, Negros – a place located just outside Bacolod City. According to the brochure, it’s of Italianate architecture with neo-romanesque columns.

The mansion was built in the early 1900’s by the sugar baron, Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson and was home to his unmarried children with his first wife, Maria Braga Lacson, a Portuguese from Macau. The mansion was the largest residential structure ever built at that time.
