The largest building of the Khmer and at the same time the largest religious building in the world.
Built in the 12th century, Angkor Wat has been voted in 2017 to the most popular tourist attraction in the world.
Angkor Wat was built with the help of over 400,000 people in just 36 years, archaeologists still question how construction was organized during that time. We are now able to visit this gigantic building.
Angkor Thom was built under Jayavarman VII and was one of the most powerful capitals of the Angkor Empire.
Today, Angkor Thom is definitely a must see when visiting the Angkor Park.
The famous Bayon Temple, the Elephant Terrace, the Baphuon Temple and much more are located in the Angkor Thom Temple District.
Alone the entrance gates are worth a visit.
The Ta Prohm temple was built in 1186 and served as a film scenery for the movie Tomb Raider with Angelina Jolie in 2001.
Ta Prohm creates a unique feeling because it has never been completely cleared of the trees. Therefore, during a visit, it is clear how French explorers found the temple in the second half of the 19th century.
Beng Melea is a temple hidden into the jungle.
As in the famous Ta Prohm temple, buildings and walls of the temple are totally covered with plants.
The temple was never fully reconstructed. Everywhere are stones, on which you can walk freely.
You get a good impression how the temples were discovered by their explorers
