Jungle Temples - Inspiration from the real thing?

Morning All

As I think I mentioned in an earlier post I took the Shed family on holiday to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand earlier in the summer. I have only just got round to sorting out the photos !

One of the highlights of this fabulous trip was spending three days in Siem Reap (Cambodia) and visiting the wonderful temple complexes scattered around this city. The most famous of which is Anghor Wat. We managed to visit several of these sites during our stay and the thought occurred to me that my fellow wargamers interested in building a jungle complex might be interested in some of the photos. Shown below are a very small number of pictures that capture the essence of these historic sites.

Interestingly they are all in various states of repair/decay (depending upon your perspective).  Sadly we when we visited these the skies were overcast and the light was not particularly brilliant.

So if you are thinking of building some temples for your pulp games hopefully these will serve as a point of reference

More soon...

PS - it took ages to get photos where tourists were not in the shot !!


  1. Astonishing - what a great trip

  2. Great pictures and very inspiring. I have a fish tank ornament of a ruined temple with faces like your picture above. It was quite cheap in a sale from a well known pet shop.

    1. I was going to comment on the availability of small Aquarium pieces, they can save you a lot of labour and if you get them direct from China they can be pretty reasonable on the wallet.

  3. Your photos of the ruins are amazing! Thanks for sharing your adventure!
