Ta  Phrom: Built in the mid-12th  to early  13th century,  Ta  Phrom  is  unique,  it  has  been  left almost as it was found: overgrown by jungle trees and vines,  with many  parts of the temples crumbling to the ground. This makes the ‘Tomb Raider temple’ one of the most picturesque and memorable of the Angkor temples.

Angkor Wat:  Cambodia’s ancient temple city is one of the wonders of the oriental world. Masterpieces of decorative details as well as of architectural style, its awe-inspiring ruins survive as testament to the spectacular achievements of Southeast Asia’s greatest civilization.   It is a replica of the universe according to the Hindu mythology.  It is composed by the Mount Meru, surrounded   by the continents and the oceans.  Its extraordinary   bas­reliefs, describe some Khmer epics and myths.
