Angkor Wat is a world-famous temple complex located in Cambodia. Built by the Khmer Empire during the 12th century, it was dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu and later embraced Buddhism. Today, it’s one of the most important spiritual sites in Southeast Asia and home to some of the best-preserved ruins in history.
Built over an area of more than 400 acres, Angkor Wat is composed of five distinct towers that are connected through walkways and galleries. These towers are surrounded by a moat that measures 1.5 miles (2.41 km) long and nearly 200 feet (ca. 61 m) wide. The grandeur of this temple complex has attracted millions of tourists from all around the world for its magnificence, historical importance, culture, and architecture.
