The 'MANDALA' Temple of ANGKOR WAT in
CAMBODIAIt contains a series of five rectangular
enclosures, the short measurements are aligned with such accuracy to a true
north south, showing no out of lineament according to modern measuring. As magnificent as it is, Angkor Wat is only one of 215 sites in the immediate region. Other famous sites include the BAYON, the sculptured stone mountain at the center of the six-square-mile walled city of Angkor Thom (about a mile northeast of Angkor Wat).
Below: The main entrance is on the west side where a giant causeway of 347 metres long (1138 ft) and 9.4 metres wide (30.832 ft) and
travels due east across the moat, then through a very large gate that leads up
to the second rectangular wall, this measures 1025 x 800 metres (3362 ft x 2624
ft). Continuing through to the next one, which with both the north and south
walls are exactly equal length of 202.14 metres (663.02 ft). The moat measures
along its outer edge is 1300 metres (4264 ft) from north to south, 1500 metres
(4920 ft) from east to west, its ditch is 190 metres wide (623.2 ft), and its
walls are put together with red sandstone blocks so precisely fitted, that when
measured around the whole area of its 5.6 kilometres (3.472 miles) it is only
just a centimetre out.
The next wall of this amazing place, is the fourth level
of this massive central pyramid. The north and south walls measure 114.24 metres
(374.70 ft) and 114.22 metres (374.64 ft) respectively. Then to the last part of
the temple, which the enclosure is the peak of the pyramid and reaches a height
65 metres (213.2 ft) above the entrance.
The south wall measures 47.79 metres (156.75 ft), the
north is 47.75 metres (156.62 ft) and according to a study by the journal
science these minute differences of 'less than 0.01%', demonstrates an
astounding degree of accuracy on the part of the ancient builders.
