|Wat Phu, near Champasak in Laos, is an Angkor-era temple and religeous site. It is simlar in architecture to the famous Angkor Wat in Cambodia, but on a much smaller basis.
Local tradition has it that the site - in particular the crocodile stone near the sanctuary on top of the mountain - was used for human sacrifice at certain important dates in the year. Walking aroung the site you do get a strong feeling of mystery.....
So rather than me showing you the normal boring list of temple shots, let's play a little game. Let's pretend that you and I are the chosen human sacrifices, and are making our way up the mountain to the temple, to meet our ultimate fate. A little sick I'll grant you, but I'm not the one who invented human sacrifice, as a race we've been doing it for thousands of years.
Let the journey begin.....
