Highlights

Angkor Wat is a massive temple complex located in Cambodia, Southeast Asia. It is one of the most important and famous archaeological sites in the world and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Angkor Wat is renowned for its stunning architecture, historical significance, and cultural value.

The temple was originally built in the 12th century by the Khmer King Suryavarman II as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu. Later, it transitioned into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century. The name "Angkor Wat" translates to "City Temple" or "Temple City."

Angkor Wat is not just a single temple; it is part of a much larger archaeological site known as the Angkor Archaeological Park, which contains many other temples and historical structures from the Khmer Empire.

Today, Angkor Wat is a significant tourist destination, attracting visitors from around the globe who come to marvel at its breathtaking architecture and immerse themselves in its rich history and culture.
