Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world, with the site measuring 162.6 hectares (1,626,000 m2; 402 acres). It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple of god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire, gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple toward the end of the 12th century. It was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century in Yaśodharapura (present-day Angkor), the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple and eventual mausoleum.
Breaking from the Shaiva tradition of previous kings, Angkor Wat was instead dedicated to Vishnu. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious center since its foundation. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.
Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple-mountain and the later galleried temple. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology: within a moat and an outer wall 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) long are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the centre of the temple stands a quincunx of towers. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs, and for the numerous devatas adorning its walls.
Angkor 🇰🇭 If you want to plunge yourself into a lost mysterious world, this is the place ♥️ #angkorwat#cambodia
OK today a photo from Cambodia which is taken more than 10 years ago with a compact camera smaller than my current phone lol #ilovemtashots I really like Cambodia and I think that Ankor Wat is a place everyone should see, despite all the crowds that visit this place every single day, it is still an amazing place! If anyone ask me what to do in Asia I always list Ankor Wat.
🔼🔽QUEDTION for today: what would you list as nr1 thing to see in Asia?
👸My answer: I know Asia is huge and there are some amazing places to see there but Ankor Wat is always my recommendation.
After spending some days in Kampot, we left the south of Cambodia to reach the famous temples of Angkor next to the city of Siem Reap.
We had some difficulties to find good picture spots are the temples are suffering from their fame...
I will be featuring some of the temples in the next weeks and I may be able to convince you to join the 2M of anual tourists who visit the Angkor temples 😄. So here goes the first one:
I decided to start with the Bakong temple because it's the first of the large mountain temples of Angkor. It was build at the end of the 9th century and was dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.
This temple is not crowded compare to the other ones which gives the opportunity to relax on the top of it while enjoying the beautiful landscape. 📌 Bakong, Angkor, Cambodia
