Angkor Wat Framed

Angkor Wat Structure

One of the five towers at Angkor Wat symbolizing Mount Meru home of the devas in Hindu mythology.  While Cambodia is currently 95% Buddist, this temple was built when the country was widely Hindu.  But this fact does not inhibit Buddists’ worship at the temple, nor does it inhibit national pride over the temple (it is Angkor Wat on the current Cambodia flag).
