  8. 8. • The "mother of all temples" - Angkor Wat. No photograph can quite capture the immensity of this monument (which may be a tomb as well as a temple.) Some of the apparent grandeur of the complex is due to clever perspective. The tip of the central tower is only 65 meters high, although its peak is more than 200 meters above the ground. However, many of the other statistics of the temple are still quite impressive. The temple is surrounded by a 200 meter wide moat (that's more than two football fields to you Americans). You cross the moat on a wide stone causeway to reach the outer wall, which itself is 5.5 kilometers long. Once you pass through the main gate in this wall, another causeway 350 meters long, leads to the inner sanctuary of the temple.
