Explaining how the meaning and doctrine of a Hindu temple is encoded in the pramana, the ratio, based on the body of the king who sponsors the construction of the temple. The Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia was built by king Suryavarman II. Eleanor Mannikka found that a cubit of 43,5 cm was the key to the astronomical code that is incorporated in the Angkor Wat temple.
