It's no wonder this Khmer King from the 10th century feels proud to be Khmer! Read this khmer people!





Cambodian ancient stone inscription under the reign of HM King Udayaditiyavarman II “Udaya Aditiya = the Rising Sun” (circa A.D 11th century), found at an ancient Khmer temple in Nokor Reachak Seima “Nakhon Ratchasima, present-day Thailand.”

The inscription said “If I will be rewarded for my meritorious acts, I wish to be reborn in Kampuja [again].”
If one studies the culture and tradition of Khmer people in depth, one will understand why Khmer people those days were very proud race and “loved their nation.” It is a history of an ancient extravaganza. The culture that spread throughout Thailand, Laos and most southeast Asia.

Kom tah lery Khmer boran, kyom koh pratna kert jea Khmer mdong thiet. Pruos Khmer jea neak mean pooch omboh la`aw nas. Khmer jea monus chet borisot. Khmer chlas vei, somboh kbach rachana…

Banaue rice terraces to me - for everyday heroism of common people!

Angkor Vat is second to me.

There are more than 200 canals directly to the center of angkor. Those canals were used to carry stone, transportation and trade.

Not much, but nobody is interested back in India. Even this drawing was done by some Brit back in the 19th century.

Oh, if only someone would become the manager of the Indian section on [Sky Palace], I would gladly sponsor all kinds of stuff.

The seven wonders of the world today were voting by all the people around the world. The vote thing it end already since 07/07/07. So, there are not a lot of people know about Angkor. And that why Great Wall of China is the top of the list. China has the most population in the world.

many great peoples of the past now lost to nowhere. sad, i must say. Egyptian (not today's Egyptian Arab race), Inca, Mongol, Khmer, etc. anyway, great to see those heritage intact and looking forward to visit Siem Reap next year.
