Angkor Wat, Cambodia

One of the most-visited tourist destinations in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage site, Angkor Wat is a vast ancient temple complex in Cambodia that is also the largest religious monument in the world. Originally built as a Hindu temple between the 9th and 15th centuries, it has been turned into a Buddhist site over time and functions as such today. The complex covers over 150 square miles and is made up of over 100 temples and shrines. During the reign of the Khmer Rouge, when all religious worship was banned (see my previous post), many of the temples in Cambodia were destroyed, including those in the Angkor complex, but magnificent ruins still remain. Here are some photos from my day of exploring.
