Gate To Angkor






Got this photo to my cousin when he was assigned in Cambodia, One of the best tourist place in the world. I've read about this Angkor Wat temple and now i want to share this to all of you.


Angkor is one of the most beautiful and suggestive place on the planet, the Angkor Wat Temples area is much bigger than the Angkor Temple alone, and last, nothing is homogeneous, being the temples built in different times, during a four centuries process. Well, if you know this, it's a good start. It was created with the intention to guide you through Angkor, but not only. We'd like to give you information about how to arrive to Siem Reap, the closest city to the ancient site. We'll speak about how to find a good hotel or guesthouse, where to eat the best food, how to relax after a whole day spent visiting Angkor and so on.


This temple is 1,5 km² x 1,3km and built by Suryavarman ІІ and is considered the biggest Asian pyramid. It is 65m high and divided in several layers. The central part has on the four corners four towers in the shape of a lotus flower. This temple is the largest and most breathtaking temple of the whole complex. The most famous decorations of Angkor are the heavenly nymphs (Apsara), there are more of 300, each one is unique and in total we can group them in 30 different styles. The central temple complex is an 800 meters long bas-reliefs, includes the Battle of Kurukshetra, the Army of Suryavarman II, Heaven and Hell, Churning of the Ocean of Milk, Elephant Gate, Vishnu Conquers the Demons, Khrisna and the demon King, Battle of the Gods and the Demons and the Battle of Lanka.
