Angkor Wat temple and grounds.

The amazing complex that is Angkor Wat is truly a captivating structure. Surrounded by a wide moat, originally populated with crocodiles to prevent intrusion, with its majestic causeway which faces to the west, toward the setting sun it is thought to be a funerary temple for its creator, other than all of the other temples that venerate the east and the rising sun.  The sophistication and intricacy of its construction and carvings is astounding.  A treasure to behold.
