Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world, with the site measuring 162.6 hectares (1,626,000 m2; 402 acres). It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple of god Vishnu 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 (present-day Angkor), the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple and eventual mausoleum.
Breaking from the Shaiva tradition of previous kings, Angkor Wat was instead dedicated to Vishnu. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious center since its foundation. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.
Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple-mountain and the later galleried temple. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology: within a moat and an outer wall 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) long are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the centre of the temple stands a quincunx of towers. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs, and for the numerous devatas adorning its walls.

Such a special place for me. Every time I see this building it brings me back to the first day of the best years of my life. The day my family began. The day I was sealed for time and eternity to my one and only. I love that we get to see it so often and that it’s so close to us. If you’ve never visited temple square, you’re missing out. ✨
At #9 is the fourth and last coaster on my turf is Goliath At Six Flags Great America! Omg! This coaster is the definition of short but sweet! These elements are put in such perfect places, and they all are intense! The previous king of woodies delivers so much in such little time. Those ejector hills are crazy! Plus those overbanks are wicked! Unfortunately, that's where all the parse can end. While the dive loop and stall are freaking amazing, this coaster suffers from being WAY to short. If it was longer, it could easily be one of the best rmcs. But it still delivers an amazing experience! Plus it's beautiful to look at! The lift supports are absolutely gorgeous! I love this coaster, it has a special place in my heart. Final score: 9/10. #rollercoasterporn#rollercoaster#themepark#amusementpark#ride#attraction#sixflags#sixflagsgreatamerica#Goliath
