CAMBODIA: Sunnyvale residents Mahesh and Rovina Suri recently visited Cambodia’s famous Angkor Wat complex, calling it “a must-see in a lifetime, as the ancient temple complex is fascinating and a testament to the greatness of Khmer civilization . The complex spans over 400 acres and is considered the largest religious monument in the world – its name translates to “temple city”. The temple walls are decorated with thousands of bas-reliefs depicting deities and important figures from the Hindu and Buddhist religions as well as key events in its narrative tradition.

TRAVEL TIPS: “We highly recommend visiting the temple at sunrise, as the first rays of the sun on the temple leave you speechless. Be sure to hire an experienced guide, as they will be able to tell you the history of the Khmer civilization and also tell you about all the intricate carvings and numerous temples housed within the complex. Try to visit the temples over a few days, as seeing them all in one day can be overwhelming. After the temple closes, visit Pub Street in the evening as it is full of good restaurants, shops, foot massage places and is full of life.
