Cambodia – Angkor Temple

Angkor Wat (Khmer: អង្គរវត្ត) is a temple complex at Angkor, Cambodia, built by King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation – first Hindu, dedicated to the god Vishnu, then Buddhist. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors.

Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple mountain and the later galleried temple, based on early South Indian Hindu architecture, with key features such as the Jagati. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology: within a moat and an outer wall 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) long are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the centre of the temple stands a quincunx of towers. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this.

Borobudur Buddhist Stupa, Java – Indonesia

 

In the 19th century, Dutch occupiers of Indonesia found a massive ancient ruin deep in the jungles of Java. What they discovered was the complex of Borobudur.

 

Borobudur is a Buddhist stupa and temple complex in Central Java, Indonesia dating from the 8th century, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is one of world's truly great ancient monuments, the single largest Buddhist structure anywhere on earth, and few who visit fail to be taken by both the scale of place, and the remarkable attention to detail that went into the construction. Set as it is in the heart of the verdant Kedu Plain, the backdrop of mighty active volcanoes only enhances the sense of awe and drama.

 

 

There is no definite written record of who built Borobudur or why it was built. It was likely founded as a religious site in the 8th century at the peak of the Sailendra dynasty in central Java. The construction is thought to have taken a period of 75 years, and completed in about 825 A.D.

Ancient Aryan Cities Rewrite History

 

New archaeological excavations in Kazakhstan are uncovering evidence of an ancient civilization that experts say could rewrite human history. The ruins of a city now known as Arkaim, originally discovered in 1989 after soviet authorities allowed non-military aerial photography, is currently thought to have been built 3500 to 4000 years ago. But Arkaim is only one of twenty spiral-shaped settlements found in the steppes near the Kazakhstan-Russian border, with the ancient ruins stretching across the landscape for approximately 400 miles. Furthermore, experts also suspect that there are about 50 more sites in the region.

 

Though not yet confirmed, these cities are believed to be the remnants of an Aryan civilisation that spread through Europe and much of Asia. Each settlement was designed similarly, surrounded by a ditch, divided into segments, having spiral streets, and a square in the middle of the city.
