Angkor Thom

Angkor Thom, the last cap­i­tal of the Kh­mer Em­pire, was a for­ti­fied city en­clos­ing res­i­dences of priests, of­fi­cials of the palace and mil­i­tary, as well as build­ings for the ad­min­is­tra­tion of the king­dom.

Ban­teay Samre

The tem­ple is worth the ex­tra ef­fort to ex­pe­ri­ence the elab­o­rate ar­chi­tec­ture, and fine carv­ings, although thieves have dam­aged many of the tem­ple’s trea­sures.

Ba­phuon

Ba­phuon is a sin­gle sanc­tu­ary tem­ple-moun­tain sit­u­ated on a high base. It is a sym­bol­i­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion of Mount Meru.

Preah Palilay

Built in the mid­dle to the last half of the 12th cen­tury, by King Jayavar­man VII, this tem­ple is ded­i­cated to the Bud­dhist and art style of Angkor Wat.
