  • In today’s lesson, we are going to look closely at Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia. It contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th centuries. \n
  • The Khmer or Angkor Civilization came into existence during the period from the year 802  to 1431 A.D. and stretched as far as the modern Thailand-Burma Border in the West and Laos in the North, southern part of Vietnam, stretching into Malay Peninsula during its peak. Jayavarman II was the king of the Khmer Empire of the 9th century and is widely recognized as the founder of the Khmer Empire.\nOver the course of several centuries, the Khmer Kingdom built nearly one thousand temples, shrines and monuments stretching across a significant portion of mainland Southeast Asia. The largest concentration of structures is located on the northwest tip of the Tonle Sap near the present day provincial capitol of Siem Reap. Among these temples is the largest religious structure in the world: the temple known as ‘Angkor Wat’\n \n\n\n

  • King Suryavarman II reigned during 1113 -1145 or 1150. He initiated the construction of Angkor Wat, which was completed in 1145. The temple is dedicated to the Hindu God “Vishnu”\n\n
  • Angkor Wat is the center of the Khmer Civilization located near Siem Reap\nThe word "Angkor" is an ancient Indian language, of "Nagara" which means "City".  Angkor Wat literally means "City of Temple" \nThe ancient Khmers were great masters of stone carving. 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.\n

  • Before we continue to our next section, I would like you to think of these questions. \nNext we are going to look at the video clips on Angkor Wat which will runs for about 45 minutes in total. There are five parts of the clips altogether. Look at your study guide now please and you’ll see sets of questions for each part. Look at part one first and I’d like you to go through all the questions in the first section for a couple of minutes. The part 1 will be shown. Actually, I actually want you to watch the clip without worrying as the story of Angkor was so fascinating. Try to answer questions in your Study Guide later. \n
