21 Photos That Will Make You Want to Join Blue Osa’s Retreat to Angkor Wat Cambodia

The magnificent Angkor Wat stands right in the heart of an ancient land now known as Cambodia. Angkor means city and Wat means temple. During the 12th century, blocks of stones were mined from faraway mountains and manually transported for its perfectly timed execution.

Thousands of Khmer workers miraculously finished this megastructure in one lifetime, only 35 years. Covering an area of 500 acres, it is larger than any European Cathedral and clearly visible from outer space. Built on water, it still stands after centuries of drought and monsoon periods every single year due to its intricate hydraulic system.

The city has survived modern wars and foreign invasions for thousands of years. Once a hindu temple for the God Vishnu, now a stunning monument to Cambodia’s golden age.
