Over 90,000 panoramic images were captured as part of Google's latest Cultural Institute project in Cambodia

Armchair tourists can explore the remains of Angkor Wat and Bayon temples in modern-day Angkor

The panoramas include the elaborate bas-reliefs, iconic towers, decorated terraces and religious statues

Angkor Wat was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century 3.4 miles from Siam Reap

The Bayon was built in the late 12th century as the state temple of the Mahayana Buddhist King Jayavarman VII



Angkor in Cambodia is one of the most significant archaeological sites in southeast Asia and home to the magnificent remains of the Angkor Wat and Bayon temples, as well as their elaborate bas-reliefs. Armchair tourists can now explore these remains using more than 90,000 panoramic images captured as part of Google's latest Cultural Institute project. Google said the images 'let people experience the scale and beauty of Angkor wherever they are', but also demonstrate how technology can change the way cultural treasures are preserved for future generations.
