Angkor Wat in northwestern Cambodia? Temple City, by area, hectares 162.6 million in the form of a temple complex, which spans the world’s largest religious structure. There are four towers around a central tower that rises 65 meters (213 feet) above the ground. The temple has 3 rectangular galleries, each of which is raised. It is 3.6 km long and is located in a moat more than five kilometers (three miles) long.

Suryavarman II had this temple erected as the state temple of the Yasodharapura (modern-day Angkor) Empire, the Khmer Empire’s capital, in the early 12th century. It was established in the early 12th century and dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu before being turned into a Buddhist temple in the late 12th century.

Angkor Wat Khmer Temple combines two basic designs of architecture: the Temple-Mountain and later the Gallery Temple. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, the abode of the deities of Hindu and Buddhist universities. Angkor Wat, unlike other Angkorian monuments, faces west. The relevance of this is debatable among academics. The temple is revered for its majesty and harmony of the architecture, extensive basic relief, and the Buddha and Deva statues that adorn its walls. The best-preserved temple in this place, there is a substantial basis from the same temple as a religious center. The shrine is at the pinnacle of Khmer architecture’s high classical style. It is one of the most important places of worship for Buddhists in Cambodia and around the world. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag and being a major tourist attraction in the country. Angkor Wat played a major role in making Cambodia a Buddhist state

Unfortunately, Angkor Wat slightly until recently – in use since the 1800’s there, the forest was the site of this significant damage from earthquakes to the war from the closure. In the early 1900s, the French, who dominated Cambodia for most of the twentieth century, established a committee to rehabilitate the site for tourists. The team also oversaw its operational archeological projects.
Under the control of the reconstruction part of the, 1960 it was not until the start of strong efforts. Cambodia was in the process of transitioning from colonial authority to a restricted constitutional monarchy at the time.
When Cambodia was engulfed in a horrific civil conflict in the 1970s, the Angkor Wat miraculously escaped unscathed. The authoritarian and brutal Khmer Rouge regime fought with neighboring Vietnamese forces in the vicinity of the ancient city, resulting in bullets marking its outer walls.

Although the number of visitors to Angkor Wat at the time was only a thousand, now about 500,000 tourists welcome the milestone every year – many of them arrive early in the morning to take pictures of the sunrise above a still magical, spiritual place.
