Amazing ruins-Angkor, Cambodia

Made by the Khmer kings in a process taking almost four centuries, Angkor was abandoned and hidden by the forest before being rediscovered by a Frenchman about 150 years ago, and restored into one of the most visited archaeological and artistic sites in the world. It's a breathtaking complex consisting of hundreds of temples, covering 500 acres. You wont get around them all, but dont miss the main Temple of Angkor Wat, which has five main towers reaching 215 feet into the air from its mile-long base, and imposing statues of 54 gods and 54 demons leading up to the temple.
