Angkor Wat, what today is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, was the capital of the ancient Khmer Kingdom built around a Hindu temple to Vishnu. This long lost city, which for centuries existed only as a myth, was discovered in 1861 by a French naturalist, Henri Mouhot. Its' enormous temples, towering spires, giant carved faces and ornate bas reliefs, swallowed by the jungle and then rescued, are an eternal tribute to a lost civilization. The "City of Kings", with some of the largest religious monuments ever constructed, is a mystic and magical place which carries a spiritual significance for many, and once in a lifetime travel experience for others.
