There are a few man-made creations that truly stand out in this world when it comes to their beauty, scale, and meaning. And it would be impossible to make a list of these without including Angkor Wat, a Buddhist temple complex in the north of Cambodia.
Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world and it remains the iconic symbol of Cambodia to this day.
Our modern world is built on certain foundations that without which – one can scarcely imagine what our lives would look like. One of those is our numerical system, a key building block in every single part of modern civilization.
Angkor Wat is Cambodia’s premier tourist destination and one of the region’s most important cultural and historic locations. Thousands flock there every month to admire the ancient structures and feel the soul of ancient civilization that still lives in those walls. However, it can be slightly overwhelming due to its sheer size and scale if you are going there for the first time.
