Angkor Wat, Cambodia.
"It is of such extraordinary construction that it is not possible to describe it with a pen, particularly since it is like no other building in the world. It has towers and decoration and all the refinements which the human genius can conceive of."

Angkor Wat still functions as a place of Thereveda Buddist worship, making it one of the largest and oldest spiritual temples on Earth still in use (continuously).
