Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world, with the site measuring 162.6 hectares. It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple of god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire, gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century. It was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century in Yaśodharapura, the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple and eventual mausoleum.

Photography Tips

Rammed with tourists, it's best to get up and going well before sunrise. Autumn gives the best chance of water in the reflecting pools, but make sure you're armed with insect repellent and a good torch. Also, for a couple of US Dollars the locals will bring out a chair for you and coffee while waiting for sunrise
