Buddha statue found in Angkor Wat

A 2.4 meter headless Buddha statue estimated to be 800 years old was found in Angkor Wat, Cambodia. The famous temple was also featured in Angelina Jolie film, “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider”. Out of all the temples in Angkor Wat this one is definitely the coolest.

Another statue was found beside a path and that led to the discovery of the bigger statue under a tree. The temple is currently undergoing a $4 million restoration which may cause disruption for visitors.
