10 Best: Cambodia-The magic of Angkor Wats

Spread over 200 acres it is the best preserved temple of Angkor. When it was built by King Sarayaman the II it was the largest public space in the world.
Instead of bricks customary at the time he used sandstone. This temple was to symbolize Mount Meron the home of the Gods. It started out as a Hindu temple and became Buddhist centuries later.
This is the only temple in Angkor that has been in continuous use since its construction in the 12th century.
When the Europeans first saw it they were so overwhelmed they compared its architecture to that of ancient Rome .
