Angkor Wat consolidates two essential arrangements of Khmer sanctuary building design: the sanctuary mountain and the later galleried sanctuary. It is intended to speak to Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology: inside of a channel and an external boundary that spans 3.6 kilometers (2.2 mi) long are three rectangular exhibitions, each raised over the following. At the focal point of the sanctuary stands a quincunx of towers. Not at all like most Angkorian sanctuaries, Angkor Wat is arranged toward the west; researchers are separated as to the essentialness of this. The sanctuary is respected for the magnificence and agreement of the building design, its broad bas-reliefs, and for the various devatas decorating its dividers.
