The Khmer Empire


[STC002998] The temple complex of Angkor Wat, which dates back to the 12th century and was built by the Khmer Empire, encompasses a land area of around 400 acres and was once the focal point of one of the most powerful and rich kingdoms in the annals of Southeast Asian history. The edifice was constructed by King Suryavarman II, and it was not just intended to evoke awe; it also functioned as the king’s funeral temple, and visitors can still go there to see the king’s remains to this day. Angkor Wat deviates from the norm by being oriented to the west rather than the east, as is the case with the majority of Angkorian temples. In Khmer culture, the east is traditionally connected with death. Dedicated to the Hindu gods Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu, Angkor Wat is considered the high point of Khmer architecture and is just one of around 50 ‘must see’ Hindu and Buddhist temples in Siem Reap’s Angkor Archaeological Park.
