In Angkor there are plenty of temples, more than at any other place in the world.
They constitute the most conspicuous remains of an ancient metropolis. The city covered a thousand square kilometres and measured thirty kilometres in diameter. It was, by some distance, the most extensive pre-industrial metropolis on our planet.
Angkor was the capital of the Khmer empire, which dominated mainland South-East Asia for centuries.
