My rendezvous with the history of Angkor. Over the years, one of Cambodia’s major travel destination has been Angkor Wat, the largest temple complex in the world. Angkor Wat, meaning a City of Buddhist Temples, was originally built as a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu, reportedly between 1113 and 1150 AD. It is believed to be a representation of Mt. Meru, the sacred five-peaked mountain of Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism cosmology which is considered the home of the Gods and core of all the physical and metaphysical existences on Earth. Evidently, all those 3 religions originated in the Indian subcontinent and hence the Angkor Wat also has strong connections to Indian history and mythology.
