Angkor Thom is the largest of the temple sites and is really a fortified city, covering nearly 10 sq km. The city is surrounded by a moat, which still has a water supply. There are five bridges and gateways crossing the moat to the city.
Bayon is the city's most impressive temple, shaped like a pyramid. The most note able features are the smiling faces that adorn the towers.
Much of the treasure, statues and items of perceived commercial value have been lost over time.
Some artefacts are residing in international museums, some in private collections.
Within the Angkor complex there are over 30 temples, the most significant have been mentioned.
Many are still in excellent condition and worth a visit.
