Angkor Wat.

Maybe some of you already heard, or saw that amazing place. It is located about 5,5km away from Siem Reap which is in Cambodia. So the place I am talking about is an important group of ancient structures. It is the southernmost of Angkor’s main sites.

Angkor Wat is the biggest and the most famous temple in whole Angkor complex. It was built for about 32-35 years. Angkor Wat was first a Hindu, then subsequently a Buddhist temple. What is interesting is the fact that it is the largest religious monument in the world. The temple was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century.

It is a good idea to take bottle of water there and something that will cover your head. It can be really hot there! It is also worth to calculate your time, and be there during sunset or sunrise. You should be prepare for a long walk! The area is really big!

So do you like ancient history, walking and admiring places? If your answer is no, Do Not Go There!!!
