Angkor: The Lost Empire of Cambodia
This great temple complex of Angkor stands among the most remarkable achievements in human history, embodying feats of architecture and engineering that remain unmatched even today, eight centuries after the pinnacle of its glory. Its awe-inspiring collection of hundreds of temples - including Angkor Wat - has fascinated countless generations of locals, visitors, pilgrims and scholars, and our understanding of Angkor and its vast Empire is constantly evolving. Today, it is a vibrant, living heritage landscape inhabited by the descendants of those who built Angkor, the Khmer people, who maintain the temple complex as an active place of worship even as it draws millions of visitors a year.
