Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Cambodia and the biggest religious landmark in the world. It was initially developed as a Hindu temple committed to the god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire, step by step changing into a Buddhist temple towards the finish of the twelfth century. It was worked by the Khmer King Suryaman II in the mid twelfth century in Yasodharapura, the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple and possible tomb. Parting from the Shaiva convention of past lords, Angkor Wat was rather committed to Vishnu. As the best-safeguarded temple at the site, it is the just a single to have remained a critical religious focus since its establishment.
The temple is at the highest point of the high traditional style of Khmer engineering. It has turned into an image of Cambodia, appearing on its national banner, and it is the nation's prime fascination for guests. Angkor Wat joins two essential designs of Khmer temple engineering. The temple mountain and the later galleried temple. Not at all like most Angkorian sanctuaries, Angkor Wat is arranged toward the west; researchers are partitioned with regards to the essentialness of this. The temple is appreciated for the greatness and concordance of the engineering and for the ious devatas embellishing its dividers.
