Angkor Wat, Cambodia
Angkor Wat is situated four miles north of Siem Reap. It is one of the largest and the best preserved architectural masterpieces. The temple, which was built in the 12th century for King Suryavarnam II, had taken nearly 30 years to complete. The temple symbolises a miniature replica of the universe and that of the cosmic world. The splendidly standing towers have their own religious significance. Angkor Wat receives more than a million tourists every year. One of our 10 places to visit in Asia before you die, Angkor Wat, appears in the Cambodia’s national flag as well. It is a prime attraction for visitors in Cambodia as well as in South Asia.
