Angkor Wat Temple

Angkor Wat almost defies description because of its sheer size, scope and significance. Built in the 12th century, its beautiful carvings and statues have since lured travellers from across the globe to marvel at its magnificence.

The carved sandstone walls are particularly celebrated as examples of exquisite Khmer art, symbolising as they do the king's vision of unity and the God Vishnu.

Angkor Wat is a representation of Hindu cosmology, and features rings of land and oceans, with a mountain peak and city that is home to the Gods.
