Angkor Temples History & Evolution

Full DayTour

Overview

Explore the temples of Angkor from a different perspective, considering the architectural progression that evolved over the centuries under the reigns of successive kings. By 802CE, when Jayavarman II founded what would become “Angkor”, a powerful Khmer royal family consolidated power over a vast expanse. Over centuries of development, successive kings directed their resources towards establishing their divine status through the construction of ever more grand and complex religious structures.

Angkor Temples History & Evolution
- Full Day
Enjoy lunch at Fabien’s house, a traditional Khmer home tucked away in the forest north of the Srah Srang baray. Enjoy a lunch of Khmer cuisine in a setting conducive to further discussion about the attractions and activities of Siem Reap and Cambodia at large. 

In the afternoon, explore the apotheosis of Khmer temple development: Angkor Wat. Arriving in the late afternoon (14:30 or 15:00) avoids heat of midday and also provides a more intimate experience, as this time sees fewer visitors. Furthermore, as the only west-facing temple, Angkor Wat is best to visit (and photograph) in the late afternoon, enjoying the uppermost platform around 17:00, and walking out as the guards begin corralling visitors out of the complex at 17:30. Exiting the temple with the setting sun shining on the Vishnu image discovered beneath the temple’s central sanctuary is a magical sight to behold and a fitting end of your exploration of the temple built by King Suryavarman, whose name translates to “Protected by the Sun”.
