Angkor Wat is one of the most popular archaeological sites visited in South-East Asia. Check out my blog on the history of Cambodia and Angkor Wat.
When I visited the Angkor Wat, I was overwhelmed by the magnitude of the site. Bring comfortable shoes, bottles of water and protein bars to explore this beautiful place.
UNESCO, which stands for United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), the primary purpose is to preserve cultural and national heritage. It protects this archaeological site and numerous cultural histories around the world.
I am hoping that my picture gallery, along with my blog, would give an appreciation of this remarkable place and inspire you to visit or put it on your bucket list.s you enter the park, you are surrounded by forest trees and magnificent remains from the Khmer Empire, which existed from the 9th to the 15th.
The Temples: Angkor Wat, Preah Khan, Ta Prohm and the Bayon make the area very popular with tourists. You will see stunning sculptural decorations dated during those times.
The temples are examples of the architecture and symbolic of that empire. Did you know? The design of the building determines the social position and orders within the Khmer Empire
Angkor teaches you about the history, religious and artistic contribution of the Khmer Empire. It is worth taking a trip to Cambodia to visit this fantastic place. The fees paid to enter the park support the management and reconstruction of the temples and its surrounding areas.
