Overview

Angkor Wat - the largest religious structure in the world (Guiness World Book). Originally constructed as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire by King Suryavarman II during the 12th century, it was gradually transformed into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the century. Its beauty and state of preservation, is unrivaled. Its mightiness and magnificence bespeak a pomp and a luxury surpassing that of a Pharaoh or a Shah Jahan, an impressiveness greater than that of the Pyramids, an artistic distinctiveness as fine as that of the Taj Mahal. Let’s discover this amazing temple complex with ViTravel.

Angkor Thom complex – Ta Prohm – Angkor Wat complex

Starting at 8am, our tourguide and driver will pick you up at your hotel then start the Angkor exploration by visiting Angkor Thom, the capital of the vast and powerful Khmer Empire during range of King Jayavarman VII (AD 1181 - 1220). You will be guided through the South Gate of Angkor Thom, famous for its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk. Spend the morning exploring the many sites  within  this  great  walled  city,  including  Baphuon,  the  Royal  Enclosure, Phimeanakas, the Elephants Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper King. The highlight of this section of Angkor Wat is the Bayon temple, which has 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces. In the afternoon, visit Ta Prohm, the 'Indiana Jones' temple which has been largely overgrown by the jungle. This beautiful area remains relatively untouched and features many impressive trees which have grown throughout the ruins. The temple tour concludes at the iconic Angkor Wat, one of the largest temple complexes within the Angkor area. Your guide will explain the many forms of symbolism within the five-towered temple, pointing out many outstanding features of the classical Khmer architecture as you enjoy the sunset.
