Virtual Tour – Angkor Wat

Angkor what? Though the name may not be familiar to you, you will most likely recognize Angkor Wat. Built between 1113 and 1150 in northwest Cambodia, Angkor Wat was a temple complex originally dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu, but converted to a Buddhist temple by the end of that century. When it was officially designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1992, tourism to Angkor Wat had just over 7,000 visitors a year. It has since skyrocketed to more than two and a half million visitors each year.
