Angkor Wat, Cambodia's most famous temple and most visited temple in Angkor, dates back to the early 12th century when it was built for King Suryavarman II. It has remained a functional religious centre since its foundation, originally Hindu, now Buddhist. This is a must see when visiting Angkor. Remember the stairs up the temple are very steep and some tourists have been injured on them. Walking around the different levels can be very rewarding because most travellers do not stop and look at the amazing statues and art work on the walls.
The climb to the top is a must for any traveller in good shape. Remember the climb up is hard and the stairs are steep and slippery. Remember to take the time and enjoy each level. Every level is covered with stone statues and carvings on every surface. This also includes the dark hallways around the permitter. Many times local monks can be found just spending a few minutes sitting in the stone windows of the dark hallways to enjoy a moments rest.
