Angkor Wat

Hindu/Buddhist temple complex in Cambodia

Angkor Wat (Khmer: ᜩ᜴ᜱ᜴ᜨᜳᜫ᜴ᜩᜲᜨ᜴ᜱ᜴) is a temple complex at Siem Reap, Cambodia, built for the Hindu king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. Before long it became a Buddhist site. It is the world's largest religious building. Angkor fell into decline after the 14th Century.[1]
