Angkor Thom

Angkor Thom means “the great city” was founded by Angkor’s greatest king, Jayavarman VII (reigned 1181 – 1219) in late 12nd to 13rd century

This city is about ¼ mile away from Tonle Sap Lake; the South Gate of Angkor Thom is 7.2km away from Siem Riep city and 1.7km away from Angkor Wat in the North. It was built under style of Bayon and was mainly show in the way people use a special kind of rock to sculpture human face on the street and God Naga on the towers. Angkor Thom was built in a nearly perfect square which was enclosed by the wall of 8m high, 12km in length and protected by a 100m wide moat (but now is dry) contained ferocious crocodiles. There is a gate opens exactly in the middle of each wall, from which a bridge extends over the moat to the area outside the royal city. In the center of the walled enclosure are the city’s most important monuments, including Bayon, Baphuon, the Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas and the Terrace of Elephants.
