Angkor Wat, Cambodia Largest Hindu temple in the world.
Angkor Wat ("City Temple") is a vast temple complex near Siem Reap, about 200 miles from the capital of Phnom Penh in Cambodia. Built in the 12th century by the king of the prosperous Khmer empire, Angkor Wat was built as a royal temple dedicated to a Hindu deity. After the city of Angkor fell to invaders, Angkor Wat receded into the jungle but continued as a Buddhist temple and a pilgrimage site over the centuries.

I've lived for thousands of years. Not a day has gone by that I did not wonder how it would have been like if I were a mortal. There's something incredibly beautiful about knowing you only get one shot in life. That fact alone is enough to make me want to become a better person. Someone I would be proud of when I look back. Someone I would be proud of when I'm on my death bed.
