Are you looking for the perfect destination for your holiday? Well, think Angkor Wat in Cambodia. A relatively peaceful country, Cambodia is well known for the many ancient artifacts and monuments that create amazing sceneries. Angkor Wat is a world tourist destination and home to the world’s largest religious monument. The stunning temple was built in the 12th century and remains the only temple in Cambodia with a significant religious meaning. The temple is strategically located in a place with several other ancient buildings giving tourists a perfect scene for antiques.

Why visit Angkor Wat?

This Hindi temple that was later converted to a Buddhist temple is surrounded by a massive 650 feet moat. The temple was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site with the symbol of the temple even appearing on the Cambodian National flag. The entire temple is a pure historical place with spiritual work of art that will leave you wanting to come again. The place is a sheer awe of beauty and one that leaves most tourists wondering how well the place has been preserved for years.
The temple has been compared with what used to exist in the ancient Roman and Greek empires.

Over a half a million tourists flock to the temple each year making it the most visited monument in the world. Taking photos in this temple and sharing them with your friends and families back home will give you moments of fulfillment. The decorations of the temple have matched well with the architecture of the building making the temple a true masterpiece of architecture. The inner walls of the temple have been nicely decorated to look similar to what you see in most Hindi epics like Ramayan. The temple is a true history of Hinduism.

The temple is a must visit, but then there is a lot you can do in the area with several places to visit in the Siem Reap area and the rest of Cambodia. Take some few hours and go through the jungles in the area or just enjoy some local cooking with the several culinary classes in the area. The Angkor Wat temple is a must visit ranking higher than Macchu Pichu in Peru and Taj Mahal in India.
