Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat is the mother of all temples and widely believed to be the largest religious building in the world. It is the only temple that faces West, which is symbolically the direction of death. Therefore it is commonly accepted that Angkor Wat was both a temple and a mausoleum for Suryavarman II. The bas reliefs and beautiful apsaras (dancing fairies) make Angkor Wat stand out for more than just it’s size and wonderfully restored exterior.
