Amazing Angkor Wat - the highlight of every tour of Cambodia.

Angkor Wat

Siem Reap is the gateway to Cambodia’s vast and spectacular Angkor Temple Complex, which is undoubtedly one of the world's greatest archaeological sites. Within the legendary 'lost city of the Khmers' there are over a thousand temples, ranging from piles of rubble to the magnificent and iconic Angkor Wat – which is the best preserved temple in the complex and reputed to be the world's largest religious building. Given that Angkor Wat actually means ‘temple that is a city’ the magnitude of the site comes as no surprise. Built for King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century, Angkor Wat was originally a Hindu temple, which later became Buddhist and it is the only temple in the complex which has maintained its religious significance, attracting pilgrims from around the world. Surrounded by a spectacular moat and towering high into the sky, with its striking Khmer architecture and extensive bas-reliefs, awe inspiring Angkor Wat is not only Cambodia’s leading attraction but one of the most impressive temples on earth.

Other key sites in the Angkor Temple Complex include jungle submerged Ta Prohm Temple which features in the film ‘Tomb Raider’ and the Bayon Temple with its giant stone carved faces. A minimum of 2-3 full days is needed to visit the main ruins of the fabled Angkor complex.
