Angkor Wat – not only Cambodia’s but, in fact, the world’s largest temple creation. It amazes visitors with ancient architectural skill and exotic looking facades. People used rocks and stones for religious buildings. Hence, the material allows the temple complex to still stand strong after centuries even though the tropical vegetation and weather left a clear mark on it throughout time.
