Angkor Wat (Khmer: អង្គរវត្ត) was first a Hindu, then subsequently a Buddhist, temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world. The temple was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century in Yaśodharapura (Khmer: យសោធរបុរៈ, 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.more info visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angkor_Wat Video Credit: Architecture of Angkor Wat Cambodia 3D - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gl41G6U_BxA cambodia angkor wat airlines where is angkor wat located in cambodia angkor wat cambodia wiki angkor wat cambodia weather angkor wat newspaper cambodia angkor wat cambodia wikipedia angkor wat cambodia stegosaurus angkor wat cambodia facts cambodia temple history cambodia temple built by tamil king cambodia hindu temple cambodia temple mystery cambodia temples list cambodia temple map cambodia temple pass cambodia temple run
Cambodia Temple Ta Prohm: Siem Reap Cambodia You need a Temple Pass that gives you entrance to the Temples. These are wonderful and well worth visiting for the antiquity as well as the beauty of stone.
You find all information summarized on my website: http://www.thehowtube.com/cambodia YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo_DKt3RsonGnKjz_m7Qw2A Social Networks & Pictures: Instagram: http://instagram.com/thehowtube/ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/HowTube Twitter: http://twitter.com/theHowTube Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/thehowtube/ In this video I explain to you how to plan your visit of the temples of Angkor. There are three different Angkor Passes you can buy: One-day pass for $20 three-day pass for $40 Seven-day pass for $60 Our tip: Buy the one-day pass in the evening and do the sunset tour. You can use the same ticket the whole following day. The best way to get to the temples is to book a Tuk Tuk tour. The sunset tour costs about $5. The whole following day (Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Bayon, Ta Prohm etc.) costs about $15.
A walk around the first of many temples in the Angkor Wat region. you must get transport to each temple, its impossible to walk from temple to temple. you will need strong shoes, and loose fitting clothes and take water with you. after 3 temples I was battered. too much heat, so think twice about if you want a 3 day pass? one day was well enough for me?
www.instagram.com/timandglo November 9-11, 2014 This video is an overview of the three packed but amazing days we spent in Siem Reap, Cambodia! We'll also upload separate vlogs for each of the three days. For now here's our itinerary: Day 1: Rented a tuk tuk and driver for the whole day, which cost $15. We were up early to buy our three-day passes then watch the sun rise at Angkor Wat. A three-day pass cost $40. The great thing about the pass is its flexibility. It's valid for seven days, and you can choose which three days during that seven-day period you'd like to use your pass. We spent the rest of the day on the "small circuit", which took us from Angkor Wat to Angkor Thom, which contains Bayon and Baphuon, then on to Banteay Kdei, Ta Prohm, and Phnom Bakheng. We watched the sunset at Phnom Bakheng, which has a capacity of 300 people. So be sure to get there with enough time to guarantee your entrance! Day 2: We rented a car and driver for $60. We drove outside of Siem Reap for about an hour to get to Beng Mealea, which was one of our favorite temples. Afterward we drove to the floating village of Kampong Phluk in Tongle Sap Lake. The village charges a $20 per person admissions fee. Once we arrived at the village by motor boat, we transferred to a canoe for a lovely ride through the Mangrove Forest. We paid $10 per person for the canoe ride. We've heard that you can negotiate to pay about $5 per person. It can seem expensive, but we think seeing the Mangrove Forest - especially on a sunny day when the sunshine bounces off the water and tree bark - is a must. Lastly, we visited just two of the three Rolous Group temples, Lolei and Bakong. The view of the sunset from the rice fields next to Lolei was gorgeous! Day 3: We again opted to hire a tuk tuk and driver for the day and visited most of the temples on Angkor Wat's "big circuit": Preah Khan, Neak Pean, Ta Som, and East Mebon. We ended our trip with an hour at the spa! We highly recommend Frangipani Spa!
