Angkor Watt Temple
Angkor Wat - Between the 9th and the 13th centuries, a succession of Khmer kings who ruled from Angkor utilised the vast wealth and huge labour force of their empire to carry out a series of monumental construction projects intended to glorify both themselves and their capital, all within the vicinity of Siem Reap. Angkor Wat, with its soaring towers and extraordinary bas-reliefs, is considered by many to be one of the most inspired and spectacular monuments ever conceived by the human mind. It was built by Suryavarman II (who reigned from 1113 to 1150) to honour Vishnu, identified as a god-king.
