Angkor Wat Temple situated in Cambodia is a popular tourist site with more than 2 million tourists visiting the place annually. Unlike his predecessors who were ardent devotees of Shiva (Shaivites), King Suryavarman II of the early 12th century built a Vishnu temple. It was towards the end of 12th century that a Buddhist statue was placed in the temple. In Khmer language, Angkor Wat means ‘City of Temples’. The temple, according to legend was built by Lord Indra for his son as a palace. It was in ruins and would have been neglected if the restoration work was not initiated in 1908. Tourism started flourishing in this place from 1990’s.
