The meaning of “Angkor Wat” is the capital temple. It was built in the early 12th century in Cambodia by the King Suryavarman II of Khmer kingdom and it took 27 years to complete the construction. It was earlier called “Varah Vishnu-lok”. This Hindu temple was initially dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Starting in the 14th century, it started hosting Buddhist cultures too. Angkor Wat contains two plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple mountain and the later galleried temple. It is built in such a way to represent Mount Meru, home of ‘devas’ in the Hindu mythology.
