Be the first to review

Angkor is the most important archaeological site in Cambodia and one of the most important in Southeast Asia. In the period between the ninth and fifteenth centuries it hosted the capital of the Khmer Empire, of which it was the religious and political center.
The majority of the best known and most visited temples are concentrated in an area of about 15 km by 6.5 km north of Siem Reap but the total area that can be defined as Angkor is much larger. The “Angkor Archaeological Park”, established by royal decree in 1994, extends over 400 km² and includes sites such as Kbal Spean, 40 km from the central area.
