Mini Angkor Wat is a miniature immitation of Angkor Wat. It is placed in the Thai Royal Palace and was contracted by King Mongkut, who ruled the land in first half of 19th century. The original Angkor Wat is in Cambodia and the king wanted to disassemble it to reassemble it in Siam, Thailand. The surveyors sent by him found the task impossible, which led the king to order the construction of its replica in Siam. It is significantly smaller from the original but housed in Wat Phra Kaew, where the Emerald Buddha is also present. It has become a symbolic site in Thailand.
