As most of you have probably seen on Instagram, I have been uploading my picture’s in Angkor Wat (Siem Reap – Cambodia). I start my journey from Ho Chi Minh City by bus and spend about 14 hours. When we arrived to Siem Reap in the central city to many person asking us for using Tuk-Tuk. They giving 3 USD for rent Tuk tuk to our hotel, after we make a deal we got 2 USD from city central to our hotel. Something makes me excited is the hotel. For the first time in my whole life we booking the capsule rom (soooo unique). We stayed there for 2 days and 2 nights, for the STUNNING Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world, with the site measuring 162.6 hectares. It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple of god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire , gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple toward the end of the 12th century.
Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the Temple-mountain and the later galleried tample. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology: within a moat and an outer wall 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) long are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the centre of the temple stands a quincunx of towers. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs, and for the numerous devatas adorning its walls.
