#1 of 2,196 in Things to do in Cambodia
A World Heritage Site and the largest religious monument in the world, Angkor Wat contains some of the greatest masterpieces of Khmer art and architecture in existence. Khmer emperor Suryavarman II had the temple built in the early 12th century, originally dedicating it to the Hindu god Vishnu. By the end of the century, the temple transformed into a Buddhist religious site, which it remains today. Tour the 162.6 hectare (402 acre) complex to see its fantastically detailed and well preserved stone temples. Wear clothes that cover your upper arms and legs down to the knees to adhere to the temple's visitor dress code. A visit to Angkor Wat represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Siem Reap online route maker to plot your vacation.

  • Very cool place to visit. A one day pass to see the temples is $37, but breaking them into two days is less strenuous since it's very hot here.
  • Such amazing architectures guessing at ( 9-11 century) Hindu temple from India had spread highest preaching to this region to build the central of the city alike Tokyo or Bombay with unique lay out to raise food, water, aquatic water flow around the city for agriculture...To bad all the people there had been wipes out with “ Dangerous Virus and Decease from jungle bacteria. To End Civilization TIL the French explorer found in the 18 century in the middle of thick South Asia jungles.
  • What more can I really say about what’s widely viewed as the most impressive temple complex in the entire world? Come see it for yourself and you will not be disappointed.
  • Simply amazing. Its both a natural beauty with the surroundings nature and birds, and an ancient wonder that's surprisingly well preserved. Come early for the perfect sunrise reflection photo because it gets crowded as people take up the best spots in front of the pond in front of the temple.
  • My first time to see sunrise at Angkor Wat. it's amazing to refresh my stress. If you come Siem Reap you must visit this beautiful template otherwise just like you never come here. If like to take photos recommend you to visit in the afternoon because it's facing to the west. The original entrance is closed however there is alternative bridge for you to get in side. Before in side there are water around with amazing view. The local people love to meet and having lunch or dinner a long the bank of water.
