Angkor Wat

The view of the three towers of Angkor Wat from the entry gate.

The Five Towers of Angkor Wat are only visible in certain angles. To see the full glory of this architectural cum religious masterpiece, descend from the steps of the right side terrace before the causeway, walk along the moat until you find the perfect spot.
