Cambodia:

Did you know that there is a country, which has the world’s largest religious building which is one of the wonders of the world? It is even on their flag, which makes it the only flag in the world featuring a building.
 
Amazing, right?
 
Do you know to which country we need to travel in order to see it?
 
It is indeed Cambodia.
 
Angkor Wat is the world’s largest religious building and considered one of the wonders of the world. In 1992 it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list.
 
Originally built at the beginning of the 12th century as a Hindu temple, it was converted into a Buddhist temple near the end of the 12th century. It’s a classic example of Khmer architecture, has become a national symbol of Cambodia and even appears on the country’s flag. Even though it was originally dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu, once it became a Buddhist temple it also played a part in converting Cambodia into a Buddhist country.
 
Today Angkor Wat is an important pilgrimage site for Buddhists from around the world, as well as a major tourist attraction!
