New reconstruction representing Angkor Wat at 1:1 scale.

Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Cambodia and is the largest religious monument in the world.
Originally constructed as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire, it was gradually
transformed into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century. It was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II
in the early 12th century in Angkor, the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple and eventual mausoleum.
Breaking from the Shaiva tradition of previous kings, Angkor Wat was instead dedicated to Vishnu. As the best-preserved temple at
the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation. The temple is at the top of the high
classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia.

The reconstruction represents the state of the temple as it could be during the first visit of a western traveler
, António da Madalena, a Portuguese monk who visited it in 1586 and said that
"it is of such construction extraordinary that it is not possible to describe it with a pen, especially since it does not
resemble any other building in the world. It has towers and decoration and all the refinements that human genius can conceive. "
The temple is a strict reproduction which requires 70 hours of pure work as well as 1 month of documentary research
on the internet and in the library, the map is 900 blocks by 600 and the main structure 270 by 220,
