Post by Abc123 » Sat Dec 30, 2017 9:19 am

Has anyone heard a Khmer person refering to Angkor Wat and the Bayon complexes as Angkor Tuoc and Thom respectively?

Aren’t Angkor Thom and Angkor Touc just temples within the Angkor wat complex?

Maybe they are referring to a specific temple within the Angkor grounds?

Good ol wiki. Thanks for that. I understand why he would be calling what is often stated as being the largest temple city complex in the world, Angkor Wat, AngkorTuoc now. Cheers
