Treasure of Asia - The Angkor Wat ruins

The Khmer people who had established the mighty civilizations on the banks of the Mekong river during the period ranging from the 9th to the 15th centuries, reached the zenith of their cultural and religious activity during the period of Angkor Wat, as seen now in its ruins. The Grand Corridor beneath the five spires of Angkor Wat was adorned with graceful figures of dancing Devata (goddess), and troops of mighty Khmer soliders on the march.

The Bayon is decorated with 54 gigantic sculptures consisting of faces of Kannon, the Buddhist deity. The terrace of the leper king depicts popular aspects of life during his reign, while displaying at the same time the marvelous harmony in the worship of the Gods and the Buddha, in the Hindu and Buddhist religions respectively.

Angkor War has indeed proved itself to be an incomparable treasure of mankind, with regard to its greatness and beauty.
