Angkor Wat, also called Angkor Vat, is a temple that was built especially for King Survayaman II at the beginning of the 12th century. It is known due to the fact that it is the only temple that maintains a religious meaning since the moment it was founded. Initially, it was meaningful for Hinduism and then for Buddhism. It is considered to be the main attraction for visitors. It calls everyone’s attention since, unlike the rest of the temples; it is oriented to the west. However, there is much more for you to discover.

Due to its amazing beauty, significance and the history that it represents, it has been nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Is impressive to realize how important this temple is.
