Angkor Wat is a temple complex at Angkor, Cambodia, built in the early 12th century as a temple and capital city, says Wikipedia.

It was first Hindu, dedicated to the god Vishnu, then it became Buddhist.

It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.
