The great city in Khmer

The city of Angkor Thom was originally founded by Angkor's greatest king, Jayavarman VII (reigned 1181-1219), who came to power following the defeat of the former Khmer capital by the Chams. At its height, Angkor Thom may have ruled a population of one million people in the surrounding area.

Angkor Thom was built in a nearly perfect square, the sides of which run north to south and east to west. It was surrounded by a square wall (jayagiri) 8m high and 12km in length and further protected by a 100m-wide moat which is now completely dry, said to at that time contained deadly crocodiles.

Agate opens exactly in the middle of each wall, from which a bridge extends over the moat to the area outside the royal city. The original  royal palace at Angkor Thom, built in the 10th and 11th centuries, was probably built of wood and no longer stands.

This is really an amazing place to visit and see its history. A lot of places are good to watch and I saw many tourists come here and spend time searching history of the area.
