Cambodia's geography has played a substantial role in shaping its history. Its central location along the Indochinese Peninsula and relatively flat terrain facilitated the rise of the Khmer Empire which flourished from its base in Angkor for over 500 years.
Siem Reap, a resort town in northwestern Cambodia, is the gateway to the ruins of Angkor, the seat of the Khmer kingdom from the 9th–15th centuries. Angkor’s vast complex of intricate stone buildings includes preserved Angkor Wat, the main temple, which is pictured on Cambodia’s flag. Giant, mysterious faces are carved into the Bayon Temple at Angkor Thom.
