Glories Of Angkor Wat

Glories Of Angkor Wat

Streaming Video - 2010
Rate this:
Abandoned by Cambodia's Khmer rulers in the fourteenth century, Angkor is a sprawling expanse of medieval temples-with the awe-inspiring Angkor Wat as its crowning feature. This program takes viewers inside the structure, which, in addition to its rich historical significance, forms a fascinating record of astronomical knowledge and Hindu cosmology. Students will learn the story of Henri Mouhot, a young French naturalist who stumbled upon the ruins in 1856 and sparked an explosion of interest in them around the world. The video also examines a record of the lost civilization itself, written by a 13th-century Chinese envoy to Angkor when it was a wealthy, teeming metropolis.
