Cambodia’s Most Iconic Temple

Angkor Wat is a Buddhist temple found in Northern Cambodia. It is the biggest religious monument in the world and its name translates to mean “temple city”. This temple is the beating heart of Cambodia and means a lot to its people.

Over 2 million people see Angkor Wat every year, experiencing the sacred temple in all its natural glory. It is full of surprises: from the decorative detail to the sheer amount of things to uncover. When given its World Heritage Site status, it was said to be the “most remarkable architectural and artistic accomplishment of the ancient world.”

The Angkor empire’s downfall had long remained unknown. Now, researchers think that intense moon rains after a long drought caused irreparable damage to the city’s structures and lead to its collapse.

A one-day pass is $37 and there are longer passes available if you wish to come back on consecutive days.

The temple was built in the early 12th century and was dedicated to the Hindu deity Vishnu.
