How Angkor Wat Was Built
So, this article talks about a series of canals found that they think could explain how the temple was built. Having been to Angkor Wat, it's an amazing sight to behold. It's mind-boggling to know that this was built so long ago without all the technology we have today. Impressive.

Few realize how impressive Angkor truly was. I've heard some historians compare it to ancient Rome. At its height, it probably had 1 million inhabitants. Read an awesome novel about the place during my trip there: http://www.amazon.com/God-King-Angkor-Tyranny-ebook/dp/B008E1P7KA
@jamesfoster Thank you, James for the suggestion. I will definitely check that out. To stand in front of it, it is definitely a sigh to behold. Back then, I could have spent hours in it, had we not been on such a tight schedule.
wow, at least you came, you saw, you experienced....as for me i can only imagine the magnitude and beauty of it, must be overwhelming....maybe someday ill get to see it too (*_^)
