Angkor Wat | Siem Reap, Cambodia

Angkor Wat is a temple complex at Angkor, Cambodia, built for the king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation—first Hindu, dedicated to Vishnu, then Buddhist. The temple is the epitome of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors. It is also the world's largest religious monument.

Angkor Wat is freakin' huge yet wall carvings cover most of the temple complex. In fact, the bas-relief of the first level of the complex is over a mile long, making it the longest artwork in the world:
