About Angkor Temples- Angkor Wat, Bayon, Ta Prohm, Angkor Thom, Angkor Archaeological Park.

Angkor Wat is an incredible archaeological site sprawled over an area of 400-square-kilometers. It is full of remarkable beauty, architecture, and natural wonders. It is a huge city with many temples in it. The temple was built by a king named Suryavarman II. It was built using a tough material called laterite, surrounded by a 650-foot-wide (200 m) moat. The temple is full of mystical inscriptions, architectural beauty and religious art spread all over. Originally it was a Hindu temple dedicated to the God Vishnu, later it was turned into Buddhist temple and statues of Buddha were added to its existing rich artwork. It is an example of Hindu-Buddhist architecture that took 30 years to complete. It is a work of art that attracts visitors from all over the world, indeed a place that offers peace and solitude of mind.
