Google has added a whole host of new Street View images to its Maps service today of the Angkor Wat region in the Cambodian capital of Siem Reap. This includes the exterior, interior, and even close-ups of the carvings on over one hundred temples. Google says it has added over 90,000 new images to its database of the Angkor temples.

From the Google Maps blog:

With more than 90,000 new panoramic images views, we hope Cambodians and others around the world can experience these cultural and archaeological treasures in an entirely new way. Whether it’s revisiting iconic sites such as Bayon Temple in time for the Khmer New Year or studying the Ramayana’s Battle of Lanka bas relief carvings within Angkor Wat, Street View can help you more easily explore Angkor’s rich heritage.

You can find the new imagery on Google’s dedicated Street View Treks page, which contains similar “tours” through other landmark locations.
