Jack Winberg, an award-winning photographer and digital imagist, will conduct a tour of Angkor Wat, Cambodia. This virtual exploration is for those of us who can’t make the real trip or wish to discover this magnificent 12th century temple in a different way.

Jack and his wife explored the Buddhist temple with the help of a native guide. He received a special insider tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and was able to record the astonishing details of his trip. He will share the secrets of this ancient site and give a magnificent sneak preview for those who might visit Angkor Wat in the future.

Angkor Wat, a Buddhist temple complex in Cambodia, is the largest religious monument in the world. It was constructed in the early 12th century as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire. Its beauty and state of preservation is unrivaled and has remained a significant religious center since its foundation. This temple has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag. It is also the country's prime attraction for visitors.
