If you were asked where is the world’s largest Hindu temple, by default most people would answer “India”. However, in actual case, the answer is Cambodia. The Angkor Wat temple temple complex was built in the early 12th century, under the instructions of King Suryavarman II, and is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. At that time, Hinduism was the major religion in Cambodia. Today there are only a tiny number of Hindus in the country, and the temple is administered by Buddhist monks. The temple is displayed in Cambodia’s national flag.
Here are some beautiful pictures of Angkor Wat, which are sure to make you go there one day!
