Library at Angkor Wat in Angkor Archaeological Park, Cambodia

In the center of a courtyard of a cruciform terrace is the Library. An additional one stands nearby. Like all of the buildings at Angor Wat, they were constructed from sandstone. It is estimated over five million blocks – some weighing 1.5 tons – were used to construct the entire temple. The stones were quarried from Mount Kulen over 25 miles away.
