Angkor Wat

Architectural Masterpiece

Cambodia’s most iconic, temple complex is the ultimate expression of Khmer genius. An architectural wonder with lotus-like towers, an awe-inspiring sight!

The famous Angkor Wat is the largest of all Cambodia’s temples. Its perfection in composition, balance, proportions, relief’s and sculpture make it one of the magnificent monuments in the world. Located in the Northern Province of Siem Reap, it is Cambodia’s rich heritage and pride, appearing on its national flag.

The UNESCO World heritage site is one of the finest, ancient Angkorian monuments in the world, built during the 12th century (113-5BC) and dedicated to Hindu god, Vishnu. Angkor Wat occupies a rectangular area of about 208 hectares (500 acres) defined by a laetrile wall. It features more than 3,000 carvings of asparas – female spirits – with 37 different hairdos.

Angkor Wat complex is a series of elevated towers, covered galleries, chambers, porches and courtyards on different levels linked by stairways. It has vast moats, giant stone lions, concentric walls, sandstone terraces, which reveals an architectural Khmer sophistication and bas-reliefs. Unlike most other temples in the complex, Angkor Wat was never abandoned, and has been in continuous use since it was built. Today, it is still a place of worship.
