The Eastern Gate into Angkor Thom, Angkor, Cambodia.
More beauty lies beyond… All you need to do is walk through.
And I think that also goes for life.
I had a few different pictures in mind for this post – all related to doors and mainly some beautiful, iron-wrought door locks and handles.
Whenever in life a door closes, another one will surely open… And all you really need to do is take a leap and walk through it to see what’s in store for you on the other side.
So, enter Angkor Thom – or Great City, in Khmer. Walk onto the causeway, across the moat, flanked by naga-carrying devas, on the left, and asuras, on the right. Through the gate, covered in faces of Avalokiteshvara – the Buddha of Compassion. And behold the beauty of the last capital city of the Khmer empire.
That is what this door holds in store for you…
