Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat is the largest Hindu temple complexes in the world.  It is surrounded by a moat. It was built by King Suryarvaman II in the 12th century and later repurposed as a Buddhist temple. It is a national symbol and  appears on the Cambodian Flag.

Needless to say there were lots of tourists there.
