8 Central Tower at Angkor Wat in Angkor Archaeological Park, Cambodia

Angkor Wat is shaped into a large rectangle. Inside are three galleries forming tiers. The levels are believed to represent the three highest levels of supremacy: the king, the moon and Vishnu. The temple also has four towers at the corners. The fifth prasat with a conical shape resembling a lotus bud is this central one. It reaches a height of 213 feet. These architectural elements are designed to symbolize Mount Meru. This arrangement is called a quincunx.
