About Angkor Wat in Siem Reap
The largest religious temple in the World, Angkor Wat In Siem Reap is a temple complex dedicated originally to the Hindu deity Vishnu which was then transformed into a Buddhist temple by the end of the 12th century. Built in the early 12th century by King Suryavarman II of the Khmer Empire, the Angkor Wat was a deviation from the traditional Shaiva branch of the previous Khmer kings. The temple embodies the classical Khmer style of architecture and also features on the Cambodian flag.
A temple is an important place of worship for the Buddhist monks and many local communities. The temple complex has numerous wall carvings and motifs related to Hindu mythology, and many temples even have depictions associated with Buddhism. The temple used to be the State temple of Suryavarman II, and its grandeur is unmatched among the state temples of other Khmer kings. Surrounded by a moat-like all the temples and cities of the Khmer empire, the Angkor Wat temple and the complex are classic examples of Khmer architecture, and even though nature has reclaimed large parts of the complex and temples, the Angkor wat remains standing tall and has become the symbol of Cambodia. The temple is visited by millions of tourists every year, and the complex is a major tourist destination and an essential part of the economy of the city of Siem Reap. The lush green trees and the water in the moats add to the mysticism and beauty of the temple and this mixture of elements is what attracts people from all over the world.
The temple is designed to replicate Mount Meru, the abode of Gods in Hindu Mythology with a quincunx of towers arranged at the center of the temple. The temple is a popular site for tourists to come and enjoy its beautiful sunrises against the temple which leave behind mesmerizing view.
