About Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world, situated 5 kilometres north of Siem Reap in northwestern Cambodia. This iconic site was designed in the classic style of Khmer architecture and encompasses a mountain temple surrounded by galleries. It is the most important symbol in Cambodia and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The exterior of Angkor Wat is composed of a moat surrounding a 4.5-metre high wall, towers at each directional point, and eastern and western entrances, the western being the largest. The interior boasts lavish decoration featuring Hindu stories and historical scenes, highlighted by the notable Churning of the Sea of Milk, as well as carved stone devata. Much of the decoration also relays relief scenes from Indian literature, combining to offer a remarkable cultural interest to visitors.

Angkor Wat is located 5 kilometres from the Siem Reap International Airport, the major aviation hub of the area. Tuk-tuks are the most popular form of transit between Siem Reap and Angkor Wat, although there are some taxis available. The area is easily explored on foot.

Angkor Wat was constructed to appear similar to Mount Meru, which is an important site in Hindu mythology. The temple is dedicated to the god Vishnu and is so symbolic that it is represented on Cambodia’s flag.
