The Chief Attraction at Angkor is the earthly representation of Mt Meru and Mt Olympus of the Hindu faith, the abode of ancient gods. The aesthetics of the temples are a fusion of creativity, spirituality and devotion. Throughout the Cambodian history, every century has been seen to have added to the grandeur of their ancestors in all respects, resulting in the world’s largest religious architecture, the Angkor Wat. A source of inspiration and national pride to all Khmers, the Angkor temples symbolized the beliefs and hope for the people of this region, which helped them through the rigorous struggle to rebuild their lives after years of socioeconomic sufferings. Today, these extravagantly beautiful temples are a point of pilgrimage for all Cambodians, and no visitor to this land will want to give it a miss. These magnificent temples of Angkor had been abandoned to the jungles for centuries, and are naturally set amid the region’s oldest national park. The Siem Reap town has a number of beautiful Buddhist temples, some worthwhile places to see and things to enjoy.
