There are few buildings that arouse such passion that nations begin wars simply to take possession of them. But extraordinary Angkor Wat, in north-central Cambodia, is one of them. In August 1863, the French adopted Cambodia as a protectorate and invaded neighbouring Siam (Thailand) to get their hands on the Angkor area. Built in the 12th century as a capital for Khmer King Suryavarman II, many of its outer buildings have succumbed to the ages and surrounding jungle. But what remains will stay with you for life.
