Angkor Wat, Cambodia – Largest Religious Monument in the World

AngkorWat

First Hindu and now Buddhist, The Angkor Wat temple complex is the largest in the world. The temple complex was built in the 12th century by the Khmer (now Cambodia) King Suryavarman II. The complex is a high-class example of Khmer architecture. The attraction continues to amaze people and attract tourists, and is even on the countries flag.

Angkor Wat has two different plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple mountain and the later galleried temple, both from early Dravidian Architecture, with important features such as the Jagati. Sandstone was the primary building material, rather than the typical brick or laterite. The harmony of the buildings brings resemblance to ancient Greek and Roman architecture.

The name Ankor Wat translates to temple city.
