Angkor Wat Buddha Statue
Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Angkor Wat, or ‘temple city’ as it means, is one of the largest religious monuments ever constructed. The Hindu temple was originally built as a dedication to the god Vishnu, and was later converted into a Buddhist temple in the 14th century, where statues of Buddha were added to further enrich its artwork.
This god is located within the upper level of the main temple which is accessed by a steep stone staircase and the views of the surrounding area are breathtaking.
