Google is continuing to map Asia’s most recognizable landmarks after it added 360-degree panoramic images of Cambodia’s iconic Angkor Wat to its Street View service, a site populated by over 50 Khmer temples which the Lonely Planet guide calls ”heaven on earth”.
Google has already taken Street View into a number of historic sites in Asia — including Japan’s Mount Fuji and the Taj Mahal in India.
The Google Maps team first entered Cambodia in July 2013. Google says that the Angkor Wat project includes over 90,000 360-degree views from over 100 temples, making it “one of Street View’s largest digital renderings of a world heritage site to date.”
