Angkor Wat features the longest continuous bas-relief in the world, which run along the outer gallery walls and depicting stories from Hindu mythology.

Ta Prohm: This is one of the most popular attractions of Angkor. Since much of the jungle has not been cleared and it looks very much as most of the Angkor monuments would have appeared when European explorers first stumbled across them.
