History

Angkor Wat- one of the biggest religious monuments carved out of stone is found to be built by Suryavarman II during 1120 and 1150 and fittingly functioned as both the state temple and as the capital city of the khmer empire justifying its name (Angkor means the city and Wat means the Pagoda). Owing to its baffling size, many even call this as the largest Asian pyramid that scales as high as 200 feet high.
