The Khmer Empire, now modern Cambodia, was largely unknown until the 19th century discovery of the ruins of Angkor Wat, an astonishing temple complex. Long abandoned, its huge and beautiful symmetry reveals it as an attempt to create a Hindu concept of Heaven, here on Earth. Yet, it also reveals a society where peasants and artisans supported an absolute ruler. One 12th century king made his people build this largest of all the world's religious temples to ensure immortality for himself as a living god, giving him enormous power, similar to the Egyptian pharaohs. Aligns with McDougal Littell's World History: Patterns of Interaction ©2009: Empires in East Asia.
