The viewer can recognize this temple sculpture and can find Bramha – the creator’s face in it. While visiting Kampuchea, we have seen several temples and its splendid architectural views. This is only a symbol of it. There are thousands of these kinds of temples in Angkor Wat (Omkar Dham).

We are standing just before the main Angkor Wat temple of Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwar.
