ASEAN Rally visits Angkor Wat temple

Historically, India-Cambodia relations come courtesy of Hindu and Buddhist religious and cultural influences, emanating out of India in the 4th-6th century AD, to various parts of South-East Asia. The pervading influence of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Indian architecture, is borne out by the structures at Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Bayon, Baphuon, and other religious and historical sites in Cambodia. Also, the Government of India agreed to preserve Angkor Wat temple when the Government of Cambodia appealed, between 1986 and 1993 and spent around four million dollars during this conservation. The 500-acre Angkor Wat is one of the largest religious monuments in the world and stands as an eternal testimony of the architectural glory of the Khmer Empire. ASEAN Rally participants visited the Angkor Wat temple and here are the photographs of the majestic temple.
