~Close up of Bayon Temple~ The tall dark faces contrast with the bright coloured tourists. Some of them face the camera, others photograph the faces. Some towers have four faces , some have two. It’s more than 200 in total. Anywhere you look, they are watching you. I am lost, for a moment. Bayon is so huge that you quickly lose track of where you are. The temple is like a maze and it opens into small corridors and narrow staircases with apsaras carved on the walls . But it is not just the faces that overwhelm you. Look around and you see several narrative bass reliefs in the temple on the outer and inner walls of the galleries. Legends, mythologies and local life of the Khmers are narrated here. The terrace takes you into a different world as faces juxtapose against doorways and watch you from every corner. We spent at least half a day here and yet I feel that it is barely enough to look at every sculpture or photograph the faces. The Nagas, the Apsaras, the Gods and the demons transport me to a different world that feels real and unreal at the same time. . . . #bayontemple #temple #magicalaf #siemreap #angkorwat #mystical #wisdom #faces #closeup #feelthemagic #adventure #cambodia #ancientarchitecture #templecity #globetrotter #discover #planetearth #shades #explore #naturephotography #magic #buddhism #instanature #insanenature #worldheritage #differentworld #sculptures #watchingyou #legends #culture at Bayon Temple ប្រាសាទបាយ័ន

presents P H O T O | @fabio_florio • Chapel of the Holy Shroud • The Chapel of the Holy Shroud is a Baroque-style Roman Catholic chapel in Turin in northern Italy. Located outside the Turin Cathedral and connected to the Royal Palace, the chapel was designed by the architect Guarino Guarini and built at the end of the 17th century. The chapel was constructed to house the Shroud of Turin, a religious relic believed by many to be the burial shroud of Jesus of Nazareth. In 1997, the chapel was severely damaged by a massive fire, the cause of which is still a mystery. Firefighters who arrived on the scene managed to save the shroud allegedly by smashing through its bulletproof glass case. Subsequently, it was closed to the public and took over 21 years. On September 27, 2018, the chapel reopened to the public. • F E A T U R E D T A G | #igworldclub_archaeology • Selected by @_.vegvisir._ • M A I L | [email protected] • M E M B E R S | @igworldclub_thematic • F O L L O W U S | @igworldclub @igworldclub_nature @igworldclub_reflections @igworldclub_macro @igworldclub_street @igworldclub_sky @igworldclub_mountains @igworldclub_lakes @igworldclub_museum @igworldclub_crafts @igworldclub_cats @igworldclub_cats#thematic_042119 #igworldclub #archaeology #archeology #archeologia #arqueologia #archeologie #archaeologie #antiquearchaeology #archaeological #ancientbuilding #archeologicalsite #ancientarchitecture #ancientruins #ancient #ancientworld #archaeologylovers #heritage #torino #cappellasacrasindone #palazzorealetorino #palazzoreale #cappelladelguarini #guarini #cappellaguarini #cupoladelguarini #cappelladellasindone #visiturin

Quando você pensar que deseja ostentar, tenha para si um salão dos espelhos como este. presents P H O T O | @tomagarnier • Galerie des Glaces • The Hall of Mirrors (Grande Galerie or Galerie des Glaces) is the central gallery of the Palace of Versailles in Versailles, France. The principal feature of this hall is the seventeen mirror-clad arches that reflect the seventeen arcaded windows that overlook the gardens. Each arch contains twenty-one mirrors with a total complement of 357 used in the decoration of the galerie des glaces. The arches themselves are fixed between marble pilasters whose capitals depict the symbols of France.[citation needed] These gilded bronze capitals include the fleur-de-lys and the Gallic cockerel or rooster. • F E A T U R E D T A G | #igworldclub_archaeology • Selected by @_.vegvisir._ • M A I L | [email protected] • M E M B E R S | @igworldclub_thematic • F O L L O W U S | @igworldclub @igworldclub_nature @igworldclub_reflections @igworldclub_macro @igworldclub_street @igworldclub_sky @igworldclub_mountains @igworldclub_lakes @igworldclub_museum @igworldclub_crafts @igworldclub_cats @igworldclub_cats#thematic_042019 #igworldclub #archaeology #archeology #archeologia #arqueologia #archeologie #archaeologie #antiquearchaeology #archaeological #ancientbuilding #archeologicalsite #ancientarchitecture #ancientruins #ancient #ancientworld #archaeologylovers #heritage #visitfrance #visitversailles #versailles #temple #history #HallofMirrors #GaleriedesGlaces #chateaudeversailles #palaceofversailles

The magnificent colours of an Italian Spring...winter is definitely over and flowers are blooming everywhere. Tivoli's jaw-dropping  Hadrian's Villa is looking picture-perfect in the sunshine - this is the so-called pecile, a large water feature based on the ancient Athenian Stoa Poikile,  a spectacular painted porch where Greek philosophers debated the mysteries of the universe. The Roman emperor Hadrian and his guests would take after dinner strolls around the pond to work off the carbs - it's still a pretty attractive proposition today, surrounded by the heady scent of rosemary that rings the pecile. To learn more about our Hadrian's Villa tour, check out the link in our profile! #througheternitytours #througheternityrome #visititaly #rome #tivoli #hadriansvilla #reflections #spring #flowers #beniculturali30 #wanderlust #wonderlust #romaeterna #romeista at Villa Adriana

A trip to the pink city is incomplete without a visit to it's most iconic pink monument. (Thus completing the RGB trifecta of my posts) . Constructed of red and pink sandstone, Hawa Mahal or the "Palace of Winds", dates back to the late 18th Century. Resembling a honeycomb structure of over 950 windows (jharokhas) complete with intricate lattices, it is reflective of the fusion of Hindu Rajput architecture and Islamic Mughal architecture which was prevalent at the time. . . . . . . . . . . . . #lategram #rgbseries #hawamahal #latticework #jaipur #rajputarchitecture #rajasthan #incredibleindia #indiatravels #indianarchitecture #india #ancientarchitecture #travel2019 #touristinmyowncountry at Hawa Mahal, Jaipur Rajasthan

For some bizarre reason, the Pyramids aren’t lit up at night — it only happens for a sound and light show. A small consolation: You get to see the Sphinx with a laser face. at Egyptian Pyramids

Take a few wrong turns behind the cathedral and you might find the ancient Roman columns in Calle Marmoles. Made from granite which came all the way from Egypt - these remaining three columns have stood here for over 1,800 years in silent testament to the Roman city of Hispalis 🌿 · · · If you are interested to learn more about Roman Seville, don't miss the Archaeological Museum in Plaza de Ameríca (free for EU citizens), the Antiquarium beneath the Metropol Parasol (€2) and take a trip 9km north west to the incredible ruins at #Italica (free for EU citizens). There are regular buses to Italica from Plaza de Armas or organised trips leaving from Torre del Oro 👍 · · · Did you know that the two columns at the south end of #AlamedaDeHercules were originally taken from the temple here in Calle Marmoles and moved in 1574. · · · Many thanks to @con_mi_mirada for the photo.

This little beautiful church was built in 1878 and is located in the midst of Sri Lanka's tea plantations in the central hills, near the little town of Dickoya. • It is a very peaceful setting with fabulous views over the waters of Castlereigh Reservoir. The church has lovely stained glass windows, carved wood alter and pulpit as well as a very old organ that is still in use. • My favourite place out of all. Totally blessed to be here! • #peripatetic_shutterbug #TravelwShey #ancientarchitecture #church #churches #ancient #gem #beautiful #travelgirl #easter #blessed at Christ Church Warleigh

I started this with an abstract watercolor painting. I came back with black pencil and created a story out of what I saw. I'm trying to marry my love of dreamy, washed-out watercolor with detailed drawings. I like how this one turned out. I'm excited to see where this style goes and hopefully it evolves into something cool. Thanks to everyone who has given me feedback in person and online. I enjoy hearing your interpretations and value your thoughts. I do this for myself but I also hope to inspire others to create. Thanks again. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ #gothicart #surrealism #mist #fog #ancientarchitecture #gothicarchitecture #spooky #spiritualism #spiritrealm #spookyart #fantasyart #wolves #wolfart #natureart #cloaked #doom #ancientchurch #banshee #ghostly #ghostart #spectre #symbolism #symbolismart #draw #drawing #art #artist #watercolor

When in Petra, Jordan - Day 9 * * A departure from my usual food posts because a) this deserves its own post, b) there was only time to climb not eat, and c) there weren’t exactly many food options there, let alone keto ones. * * Petra - one of those places on earth, a New 7 Wonder of the World, not only a mind-blowing piece of history, but an inconceivable feat of architecture that I absolutely had to see with my own eyes. * * I can’t describe the feeling as I came to the end of the Siq (a 1.2 km fissure in the rock face which leads into Petra) and the Treasury slowly revealed itself. I took the video as I entered for the first time. It was admittedly hard to keep the camera focused while I simultaneously tried to pick my jaw up off the ground. * * The next six hours were spent exploring as much possible. The climb up to the Monastery was equally satisfying. A 35 minute hike up what felt like a million steps to reach the top where you’re greeted by hoards of people and think whaaaa? A hard 180 degrees and there, in all its glory, another Nabatean masterpiece. Larger than the Treasury, though far less ornate, it is captivatingly beautiful. * * One more climb, this time to the High Place of Sacrifice, some 700 steps ⬆️. I’m not going to get into the nitty gritty because I’m no historian. But this is exactly what it sounds like, a place where sacrificial offerings (animal blood) were made to the gods. A panoramic view like none other. You can really appreciate that at this height and with this view one can feel more heavenly than earthly. * * Explorations had to stop one climb early as my recently acquired heartburn attacked with a vengeance. I’m not sure I can make a concrete correlation between keto and this debilitating heartburn, but it seems to have started about two months into keto. Anyone else experiencing this? It is torturous - a stop me dead in my tracks, keeled over, gritting teeth, angry snarling noises kind of volcanic burn. * * #ketotravel #ketotraveller #ketolifestyle #ketolife #ketodiet #ketocanada #ketocanadian #ketoaroundtheworld #eatmywayaroundtheworld #ketoliving #petra #exploreeverywhere #exploretheworld #mountainview #ancientarchitecture at Petra, Ma`An, Jordan

Temple of Apollo | Corinth | Greece —————————————- The temple of Apollo at Corinth is one of the earliest Doric temples in the Greek mainland and one of the few standing Archaic Greek Temples in the world. The temple built around 560 B.C. It was peripteral, surrounded by a pteron of 42 monolithic, limestone columns, over 7 m. high. In the Roman period the Temple of Apollo was renovated in order to house the cult of the Emperor. In the Ottoman period a residence of the local Turkish Bey was built on top of its crepis. Today only seven standing columns of the western pteron and part of the crepis and its foundations are preserved. . . . . . #ancient #corinth #ancienthistory #ancientgreece #ancientarchitecture #ancientruins #ancientworld #archaeological #archaeologicalsite #archaeologist #archaeology #museum #archeologia #archeology #architecture #art #arthistory #fineart #greece #ig_greece #architecturephotography #history #explorer #explore #travelphotography #travel #temple #monument #landscape #landscapephotography
