Cambodia travel: The lost world

Monday, 04 August 2008

cambodia travel The history of Cambodia is very sad. The prosperity of ancient Khmer civilization of VIII - XII centuries was followed by centuries of endless wars and deep misery. The calamity reached its apogee in the XX century during the Khmer Rouge regime under Pol Pot when every forth citizen of Cambodia died from execution or starvation.

Cambodians seem not to be able to realize the value of their inheritance. Therefore, they continue slowly to plunder Khmer temples and sell unique sculptures and bas-reliefs for next to nothing. Local residents are very good-natured and treat their guests with a big sympathy.

The city in the jungle

Hundreds of years ago Angkor, the capital of the ancient Khmer state, was one of the largest and most beautiful cities in the world with a territory of 250 sq. miles! Twenty six Khmer kings had built it for six centuries in the wilderness of the jungle. The scale of construction can be compared with the Pyramid construction in Egypt. In the XV century in the course of the war with Thailand, Angkor was ruined and abandoned. The unique city was neglected for 400 years. Just in 1cambodia travel861 French scientist Anne Muo by sheer chance came across some temple ruins in the jungle. In 1992 UNESCO declared the temples of Angkor the world heritage. The town Siem-Reap nearby evolved into a tourist centre, and modern life of the ancient city began.

Tree-killers

The temple Ta Prohm is the most unusual of all Angkor temples: gigantic trees gird its structures with powerful roots (almost 3 feet in diameter!). In a couple of hundreds years the tree- killers could destroy the temple completely, but nowadays there is no such threat: the considerable amount of work has been done to preserve and restore the temple. King Jayavarman VII constructed Ta Prohm for his mother; later the temple was given to a Buddhist monastery. Inside the small sanctuary ("prasata") there is a unique place which is famous for its acoustic miracles. After a prayer, one can softly hit oneself in the chest, and the sound can be compared with thunder; the words seem to ascend straight into the skies.

Angkor Wat

is cambodia travel the most recognizable temple of Cambodia, its symbol. From afar the temple looks like a large multilevel cake decorated with towers-candles. King Suryavarman II intended it to be his tomb. The walls of temples and galleries are decorated with elegant bas reliefs, depicting scenes from Ramayana, military battles and feasts with beautiful dancers - asuras. The pattern is nowhere repeated.

At first glance the mystical temple of Bayon seems to be a whimsical pile of stones. It takes some time to distinguish images of gods over hands folded in welcome gesture...

And a heart for a titbit

Local eateries serve diverse exotic dishes. And although several years ago the Cambodian government forbade to use rare animals for cooking, tortoises and snakes are still on the menu. A live cobra is sold by weight: after some bargaining, one can purchase a reptile of several pounds for $100. Watching a process of this 'delicacy' preparation can cause some trembling: the snake head is chopped off first, then snake blood is collected, mixed with whisky, and served to the guests. The snake heart, warm and raw, makes a final titbit. Some people say it enhances man's power (to tell the truth, not many dare to try). As for a bowl of rich snake soup with spices - it pleases almost everyone.
