This is the second video from the Angkor temple complex in Cambodia, number 668 on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
Wikipedia states that Angkor served as the Khmer Empire’s capital from the ninth until the fifteenth century. There are more than a thousand temples in the Angkor region. They range in size from unremarkable piles of brick debris strewn throughout rice fields to Angkor Wat, which is reputed to be the biggest single religious structure in the world. The majority of the temples at Angkor have undergone restoration. All in all, they make up the most important example of Khmer architecture.
This is part 2 of a series of 4 videos. The scenes on this video are from the following temples. (Numbers indicate minutes and seconds into the video.)
Angkor Thom South Gate (00:00); Bayon (00:35); Baphuon (01:33); South Kleang (03:06); Terrace of the Elephants (03:12); Phimeanakas (03:58); Tep Pranam (04:41); Preah Palilay (04:55); Terrace of the Leper King (05:15); Thommanom (05:25); Banteay Kdei (08:48).
