Angkor Wat at Sunrise

Siem Reap Sunrise over Angkor Wat WM

Angkor Wat is perhaps the best known temple in the Angkor Archaeological Park in Siem Reap, Cambodia. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Angkor is worth the trip and is absolutely gorgeous at sunrise. Built as a Hindu temple for the Khmer Empire originally, it changed to a Buddhist temple at the end of the 12th century. Angkor Wat is the largest religious site in the world and is extremely popular at sunrise when hundreds of tourists come to snap photos.
