Made by the Khmer kings in a process that last almost 200 years, this magnificent area had been abandoned and hidden by the forest. Re-discovered by a french man about 150 years ago, Angkor Wat is ready to become one of the most visited archaeological and artistic sites on the planet.

The outer wall, 802m and 4,5 m high, is surrounded by 30 m apron of open ground and a 190 m wide moat. The temple is westbound, which is very rare. The temple consists of sandstones, which were brought from at the 40 km distance.
