Angkor, Cambodia (Expoza)

Angkor, Cambodia

This is from a series of films by Global Television shot all over world, giving well photographed introductions to various places, of which we will be focusing on the ones of interest to Buddhists.

The films are quite light introductions to their subjects, mainly good photography, well chosen soundtracks, and a reasonable, but sometimes inaccurate, narration giving a cultural and historical introduction to its subject.

This week the team focus on just one site, the magnificent Angkor civilisation of Cambodia, which flourished from around the 9th-13th centuroes and produced some of the finest architectural achivements of mankind.

All the usual sites are included in the film, starting in Ta Phrom, the temple that has been overgrown by nature, and including Bayon (the face tower temple), Banteay Srei (the women’s temple), before concluding with a look at Angkor Wat itself, the largest religious monument in the world.
