The individual temples that are located in this complex were most likely built in the period of the IX century AD. This was mainly due to the Hindu rulers. Due to a change in the official religion, but also due to the fact that the capital was moved to Phnom Penh, the Angkor Wat complex was inhabited only by monks during the fifteenth century. They also gradually left the place, mainly in connection with the invasion of Thai troops, whose task was not only to devastate the area.
