I walked around Angkor Wat.

( I don’t think I see all around yet,)

Many area still close and have The information Board.

And there ‘s one sign I saw it all around..

so I just wonder.

Whats that sign.

Its like some Foundation or Organization or something.

I got answer from my bf.

Its APSARA Authority,

who manages the Angkor temples and the surrounding area

Yes. talk about apsara. You know right.. that Apsara mean Angel or นางฟ้า

Apsaras are supernatural beautiful girls:

they appear as young women of great beauty

and elegance who are proficient in the art of dancing, at Angkor Wat

At Angkor have like almost 2000 apsara.

.that incredible. And in each Apsara, Its UNIQUE

different dress,

different hair style,

different face,
