Reinhart and a lion                       The Temples of Angkor

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.
