Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat ("Capital Temple") is a temple complex ranked as the world's largest religious monument. It measures 163 ha (402 acres / 1,3 km2) and was originally built as Hindu temple dedicated to God Vishnu, but gradually transformed into a Buddhist temple.

Angkor Wat Temple (Cambodia)

Angkor Wat was built in the early 12th century in Yasodharapura (present-day Angkor), as Khmer Empire's capital city, state temple and royal mausoleum. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west. This is Angkor's best-preserved temple and the symbol of Cambodia. It appears on country's national flag, and is Cambodia's top tourist attraction.
