Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Another religious place that we went to was Angkor Wat of Cambodia.  Angkor Wat translates to “Capital Temple” or “Temple City”.  It is a temple complex in Cambodia and is the largest religious monument in the world.  It was first constructed as a Hindu temple,  but toward the 12th century, it converted to Buddhism.  I thought it was significant because it is the largest religious monument in the world and it has Buddhism.
