There are almost 13,000 square feet of bas reliefs at Angkor Wat. Most of this mid-12th century Khmer artwork depicts scenes from Hindu mythology. They include epic battles plus the visual stories of princes and kings like this one of Suryavarman II. The most famous is called the Churning of the Ocean of Milk. This elaborate panel illustrates the creation of the universe.
