Gallery D: Angkor Wat

"Heaven on Earth"

Angkor Wat is best known and the most significant example of an earthly paradise. Its unique architecture is held dear by the people of Cambodia, representing an engineering marvel that still baffles many specialists today.

A visit to the Museum would bring visitors closer to Angkor Wat and learn how the gigantic city was constructed, thus maximizing the splendor that visitors will feel the next time they visit the real Angkor Wat. The highlight of the galleries is the portrayal of Angkor Wat Temple and the equinox phenomenon.
