Ângkôr means „city“ and Vôtt means „temple complex“. The position of the Angkos Wat is unusual. It is oriented towards West. West is the cardinal direction of Yamas – God of death. Therefore the facility signifies a gravesite although this has not yet been proven. It is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 1992.
