    Angkor Wat, Egypt, Sumer, S. American buildings, etc. were built by very spiritual people who you will never understand. Their thought processes were totally different than ours. “On earth as it is in heaven” is what these people realized. We can forget that because there are too many devious people in charge of our governments.

    The modern narrative makes me laugh, and makes me angry. The locals of old saying the structures built themselves or was always there is the most probable and the most accurate account of the structure. Every great structure being known by academia to be a “temple” or tomb of a king (like the Great Pyramids) is nonsense. Angkor Wat is not understood by our current wisdoms or abilities. There are still discoveries being made about this location still today. Any explanation or accepted history is nothing more than a story, a fable.

    Funny how they say the ancient Khmer could only have built these cities and temples because they truly believed their king was a God - then went on to mention how crimes for lesser punishments involved cutting off fingers, hands, and noses! Gee, maybe they worked for the king because they didn’t want to be thrown in a pit and buried alive?? In a massive city with THOUSANDS of inhabitants there is NO WAY the average citizen truly believed their king was “a god”. Also, are we not going to mention the fact that the temple of Angkor Wat is a temple to the god Vishnu? How does the king’s supposed claim of holiness tie in with the Hindu religion? I doubt the ancient Khmer were incapable of thinking critically. I hate when people paint this broad picture of an ENTIRE civilization that would have been made of thousands of very real people with daily lives and thoughts - you don’t think there were at least HUNDREDS who criticized the kings decisions, debated religion and philosophy, wanted to travel? Maybe there were even groups of people who criticized these massive building projects? It just rubs me the wrong way to paint the picture that they were zealots feverishly building a temple for a supposed God-king when the evidence shows they must have been highly advanced and at the forefront of current technologies for that time period.

    He said that the temples are topped by lotus flower buds. OK he is the expert. I always thought they matched the spikey flowers in the woman dancer's head dresses. Mint, Salvia, Lupines, Vitex flowers perhaps? The Greeks decorated the tops of their columns with Acanthus. Acanthus flowers make a decent match too.

    As a fellow Khmers here, I feel myself experiencing a mix emotion such as sadness, regret, excitement, joy and so on. As the video goes by, I end up speechless, I have nothing left but full of ideas and consciousness that it went to the point that I can’t express myself. This is enormous! I remember when I was a kid 5-10 year old, I didn’t know how much this masterpiece means but now, my eyes are bleeding with tremendously feeling such as being mysticism. I’m so proud and feel lucky to see this at this moment of time. Even tough I’m french Khmers, I would say that this is what I’m proud at of being CAMBODIAN !

    Even crazier than the fact that they were able to build it to perfection, is that they carved every square inch visible to human eyes, with pictures and symbols. Even the, easily overlooked, outside walls and the base of the structure are covered in them. The only places that weren't carved out, were the places no eyes would ever look.
