Angkor Wat Temple complex in Cambodia is the largest religious monument
in the world. It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple for the Khmer
Empire and gradually transformed into a Buddhist temple toward the end
of the 12th century.
Its perfection in composition,
balance, proportions, reliefs and sculpture make it one of the finest monuments
in the world.
It is a series of elevated towers,
covered galleries, chambers, porches and courtyards on different levels
linked by stairways.
