Explore the Ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the Street View

Continuing its endeavor to map the world in first person, the Google today released a new tour available in Street View: the ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, known as the largest religious monument in the world. And as one of the locations that horrible movieTomb Raider.

Angkor Wat was built in the twelfth century and became the political and religious center of the Khmer Empire which dominated the region between centuries IX and XV. It is estimated that about 20 thousand people live in the complex at its peak. In addition to the main temple, he served as the imperial palace.

In 1992, it was declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the main symbol of Cambodia, appearing to the flag of the country – and is also its main tourist destination.

The Cambodian authorities expect the documentation of Angkor Wat attract even more tourists to the temple (every year, 2 million people visit it) and help preserve its history.

To make the images of the temple, Google used more than 90,000 panoramic images, in addition to the traditional cars and backpacks that make the Street View photos.

As usual, the website dedicated to the experience brings points of interest highlighted and a brief description of what they are about. Well worth the visit.
