CAMBODIA ~Angkor Wat~Unesco~

What a coincidence...Some countries of which you thought never ever to receive a card from... And now I got two from Cambodia in a few days time and also from the same place.... But it still amaze me to see such a beautiful place!! :)

Angkor Wat is a temple complex at Angkor, Cambodia, built for the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation—first Hindu, dedicated to Vishnu, then Buddhist. The temple is the epitome of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.
