River of Linga

Out on our second day of temple touring our Tuk Tuk driver Mr Phal takes us to Ka Spean outside of the Angkor area. We have a walk of one and a half K on a rugged path through jungle. What we find is not exactly a temple but a carved river bed. They had to divert the stream in order to carve hundreds of linga (The penis symbol of Lord Shiva) into the rock. This is just one small section of the carvings.
