When it was built by King Sarayaman the II it was the largest public space in the world. Instead of bricks customary at the time he used sandstone. This temple was to symbolize Mount Meron the home of the Gods. It started out as a Hindu temple and became Buddhist centuries later. This is the only temple in Angkor that has been in continuous use since its construction in the 12th century. When the Europeans first saw it they were so overwhelmed they compared its architecture to that of ancient Rome .

Taking seven weeks to travel along the Trans-Siberian railroad across Russia is a once in a lifetime trip. We would never have done it but for our project of writing and filming a Geography of the World series for Middle School students. All the World Geography textbooks include a chapter on Russia, so we had no choice. It was our good fortune that MIR Corporation of Seattle took care of land arrangements for us in return for a promotional video. Thanks MIR. less
