Angkor Wat at Sunrise
To capture the perfect Angkor sunrise photograph and if you have no concerns with crowds of other travelers, we suggest you arrange a wake-up call for 4.50am and depart from Amour D’ Angkor at 5.00am. You will reach your destination, the main entrance to Angkor Wat and the west causeway at approximately at 5.25am.
Angkor Wat is the centerpiece of all the temples of Angkor. Angkor Wat was built during the reign of King Suryawarman II in the form of a massive “temple mountain” dedicated to the Hindu God, Vishnu. Angkor Wat is quite an unconventional temple as it has westward orientation this has led some to suggest it was constructed as King Suryavarman II’s funerary temple.
