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.

Angkor Wat reviews
Offers majestic view for sunrise and sunset. It is one of my dreams to visit here. Pyring the area makes me more culturally and architecturally amazed. Good to go for a walk ❤️❤️ more »
It was an early start at 3.30, to avoid rush hour for tickets and get inside in time to see the sunrise at the lotus pond. I recommend you have a guide along when visiting and make sure u take a cab.... more »
