ANGKOR WAT : BEST OF CAMBODIA TRAVEL

Do you know the movie”Tomb Raider”?  Angkor Wat is studio of Tomb Raider and where is an ancient city in Cambodia that was the center of the Khmer empire that once ruled most of Southeast Asia. This civilization went extinct, but not before building amazing temples and buildings that were reclaimed by the jungle for hundreds of years. Angkor’s magnificent monuments attract many thousands of visitors but with careful planning you can find many way to discover. Its still breathtaking to see.

Evoking dreams of an exotic past, the temple of Angkor Wat is the number one attraction in Cambodia. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the world’s largest religious monument. Cambodia has taken Angkor Wat as its national symbol; a depiction of it even appears in the flag. Originally built as a Hindu temple, Angkor Wat remains crammed with stone reliefs and statues of Vishnu, Ganesh, Shiva, Hanuman, and the mystic dancing girls, the Apsaras.

As I was quickly learning, one of the most remarkable things about 21st-century Angkor – almost as remarkable as its vertiginous beauty, which retains the power to render you speechless a full 12 centuries after building first began – is that with just a little cunning you can enjoy it almost as you might have done two decades ago, when it was just being opened up after the terrible civil war.

Ta Prohm is one of the most photographed temples, deliberately left mostly unrestored, and tangled and strangled by undergrowth. The perennial favourite, at Angkor Thom, is the Bayon temple, the towers of which are etched with enlightened bodhisattva faces and where enchanting bas-reliefs depict ordinary Khmer life rather than Hindu gods.

The visitor said : “Astonishing !!! I have visited Angkor twice already and I think I will probably visit it once again. The reason is really…”

He can’t find a reason. And you ?
