Cambodia Trip - Part 13 - Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat was for me to be the highlight of this trip, but I must say, I was a little bit let down by it for some reason! It is a massive temple complex set out on a vast landscape across a river/moat which is 190 metres wide. It is the best preserved and most famous of the temples in Asia. In fact it is the largest Hindu temple in the world. Built in the first half of the 12th century it was built in the Angkor Wat style of architecture. In it's day it would have been marvellous to see how it operated. It had a great big swimming pool on the upper levels. Would have loved to have done a few laps in it back in the day!
