Description:

That's my niece Nikki who visited us this summer. Taken at the ancient capital, one hour north of Bangkok, where you'll find many breathtaking temple ruins from the 14th-17th century.

    Southeast Asia is definitely on my list of places that I want to visit in the future.

    Beautiful niece
    What a gorgeous temple! It just amazes me how things are built all around the world and in the earlier years. That building is just breathtaking!!

    Texasgirl, what you see here is just one of 500 temples and monuments built within this ancient city. There are stories attached to most buildings. One temple ruin that was looted before yielded a mind-boggling amount of royal gold artifacts. One can only surmise that royal treasure is still buried intact in many of these monuments. Thailand has one of the richest surviving cultures in Asia.
