Amazing Angkor Wat
Tour Angkor Wat, Cambodia’s complex of ancient temples built by Khmer kings over 6 centuries. Marvel at an architectural site that rivals the wonders of China’s Great Wall and Peru's Machu Picchu.Filed under:
There are some temples on the outskirts of the main Angkor Wat temple complex, and Banteay Srei is an amazingly well-preserved one. Its strong, pink-hued sandstone base could be one of the reasons, along with the fact that it was the first Angkor temple to undergo restoration. Banteay Srei means “Citadel of the Women,” and some believe only a woman could have carved its delicate wall reliefs.
