Ang Kor Wat in Phnom Penh, Cambodia is said to be the world’s largest single religious monument, it is a temple complex at Angkor built by King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation (first Hindu, dedicated to the god Vishnu, then Buddhist). The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture and it has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country’s prime attraction for visitors.
