Siem Reap – Day 2 -Angkor Park Complex

Our second day at Angkor Wat complex started with the sunrise over Angkor Wat.  After this we toured Angkor Wat then moved on the next following other sites:

  • Bayon
  • Baphuon
  • Phimeanakas
  • Ta Keo

 

Angkor Wat

This temple complex is the largest religious monument in the world. It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple for the Khmer Empire, gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple toward the end of the 12th century.  It was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century in Yaśodharapura, the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple and eventual mausoleum.

  • RUINS and MONKEYS! A can’t miss tourist attraction! :^) Incredible! I remember how awestruck I was with the cathedral ruins (also 12th century) in St. Andrews, Scotland. (But no monkeys.)

    • For people like us who are not familiar with monkeys it was cool to see them however you could tell the locals don’t have much time for them. To them they are just a pest coming to steal food away or to aggravate you. We learned if there are moneys around you better not have any exposed food on or around you – they will take it away from you!
