Angkor: Angkor Wat

Posted by

Angkor is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It spans 400 km2, and sits aside other remarkable building feats such as Petra, Stonehenge, the Pyramids and Bagan to name a few. It has a long and complex history that can be read on Wikipedia.

Angkor Wat was originally commenced as a Hindu temple, but was later converted to a Buddhist temple. The huge stones used to construct the temple came from quarries almost 40 kms away. This mystery was solved in 2012 when it was revealed a series of canals were used to float the stone to the temples. (Source: Live Science)
