Picking up where we left off in Siem Reap, we visited the Angkor Wat temple. It is located just outside of Siem Reap- pictures don’t do justice to the immense size and the grandeur of the architecture. It is the largest Khmer temple complex in the world, built by King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century. The incredible decoration, which is made up mostly of bas-relief friezes and large-scale scenes is something to be seen in person. Even though the temple is Buddhist, the carvings and sculptures are mostly Hindu.
