Angkor Temples

 
 

The famous archaeological site of Angkor is located 7 km from Siem Reap downtown. This monumental complex comprises more than a hundred temples, palaces and pagodas built between the ninth and fourteenth century during the reign of King Suryavarman II. These Angkor temples are evidence of a glorious time when Khmer Empire reached its peak. This group of monuments constitutes the largest archaeological site of the world. Spreading over several thousand hectares, these elaborate temples created a strong link between religion and royalty, each with its own significance and splendor. This has been the greatest source of national pride for Cambodian people and endless inspiration for millions of travelers worldwide, making it one of the most attractive destinations in the world.

The discovery of Cambodia would not be complete without attending at least one traditional Khmer dance performance, often called "Apsara Dance" which features the most popular pieces of classical dance.
As a plenty of apsaras (celestial dancers) that adorn the pre-walls of Angkor temples and Angkor, Apsara dance is an important part of the Khmer culture for more than a millennium.
