Two square kilometers
Angkor Wat includes an area of about two square kilometers (3/4 of a square mile), surrounded by an enclosing wall and a moat of some 200 m (655 ft) wide. The central sanctuary or pyramid stands some 60 m (200 ft) high and is surrounded by three enclosures with galleries. The building was made of dry (unmortared) stone, with a core of laterite blocks and veneered with Mesozoic sandstone.
