North side pond on the outer enclosure

North side pond
The image shows the north side pond where the tourists gather in the morning to view Angkor Wat at sunrise. If the weather is right, the sunrise offers a spectacular view of the temple with its reflection on the pond.

There is also a similar pond on the south side. The ponds were not part of the original monument but were built sometime in the 16th century.
