Cambodia is a land of great interest rich in culture and customs. Cambodia’s biggest draw may be the magnificent temple complexes of Angkor Wat - the largest religious monument in the world covering an impressive 17,609,757 square feet and the surrounding ruins of the Khmer empire built by Suryavarman II during the early 12th Century dedicated to Vishnu (Hindu God). The Angkor Wat temples are the largest religious monuments in the world and recognized as an important cultural site by UNESCO.
