6. Angkor Wat, Cambodia
Twelfth century Angkor Wat, the largest religious monument on earth, is a staggering creation. Inspired by Hindu sacred design, it was commissioned by Khmer King Suryavarman II. It’s estimated to have taken 30 years to complete and as the name Angkor Wat – “city which became a temple” suggests, it was both city and temple.
The approach to Angkor Wat gives visitors an immediate appreciation of the scale of the monument crossing a vast moat along a causeway built with enormous sandstone blocks and flanked by naga shaped balustrades. But it’s not until you’re inside the temple’s cloisters that the extraordinary intricacy and beauty of the stone carvings is revealed.
A good look at Angkor Wat will take several hours and it’s best visited at least twice – early in the morning and late in the afternoon.
