Angkor was put on the map in 1860, by Henri Mouhot. Henri was going on a series of trips in which he was going to find new zoological specimens. Through his journey of trying to find specimens, he came across Angkor. Henri recorded three weeks worth of drawings and observations of Angkor and told everyone once he had come back from his botanical expedition.
