Angkor Wat, the most famous temple...

 

 

Also the most majestic of Angkor, whose towers are the emblem of Cambodia. Angkor Wat is a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu, The construction was begun in the early twelfth century (just before  Notre-Dame de Paris) during the reign of King Suryavarman II. The construction of Angkor Wat lasted 37 years. Its name means in Khmer "pagoda city." The main tower of the central temple represents the mountain "Meru" (or Kailash), the center of the universe for the Hindus (but also the Buddhists). The temple is supposed to be invulnerable and During the war which began in 1970, the people of Siem Reap had taken refuge in the temple.
