Lost in Angkor

12 September, 2017

Angkor Wat is located in the Angkorian architecture complex built by the Khmer Empire from the 9th to 15th centuries.

Angkor Wat worshiped Hindu god Visnu and is considered as the culmination of Khmer architecture. Later, when the Khmer Empire was under the rule of Buddhism, Angkor Wat became the temple of the Buddha. After the capital was seamed by the Seam and the Khmer kings fled to Phnom Penh in the 15th century, Angkor Wat was covered by the jungle and discovered by Herri Mouhot in 1860.

The main temple was built in the image of the pyramid, with five towers representing Mount Meru of India and divided into three levels: the first floor represents hell or land, the second floor represents Humanity and the third level represent the Gods.

Angkor Wat is a splendid architectural achievement that represents a profound, all-knowing level built into Angkor's heyday and is the jewel of Cambodia.

Every time visit to Angkor Wat, people are not moved and impressed before the great, mysterious wonder. Today, Angkor Wat is known as one of the wonders of humankind, the artificial heritage is recognized by UNESCO.
