Thinking of traveling back in time? These three amazing ruins are thousands of years old and have uncovered much about lost and ancient cultures.
Angkor Wat, Cambodia
Angkor Wat is the world’s largest religious monument extended over approximately 250 miles and is home to more than 50 temples. It’s also a powerful throwback to the Khmer Empire, the Hindu-cum-Buddhist government of Southeast Asia that ruled between AD 802 and 1431. The Wat attracts visitors due to the amazing spiritual atmosphere.
These ruins located in a picturesque mountain town on the slopes of Mount Parnassus (about two hours from Athens) were considered the center of the world by the Greeks. Occupation of the site at Delphi can be traced back to the Neolithic period with extensive occupation and use beginning in the Mycenaean period (1600–1100 BC).
