In its remarkable state of preservation, Angkor Wat remains unrivaled with beautiful details of surreal carvings and intricate stone buildings that perfectly illustrate an ultimate expression of Khmer genius. The inexpressible charm of Siem Reap city lies in its majestic grandeur and simplicity of the sandstone ancient structures covered with countless sculptural decorations. A distinction of traditional architecture featured in these ancient temples is asserted to be the perfect blend of creative ambition and spiritual devotion.
