Angkor Wat, a treasure of ancient scientific knowledge

With this video, I start a series of presentations detailing the astronomical encoding incorporated in the architecture of the ancient Khmer Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia. This presentation is based on the work of Dr.Eleanor Mannikka, who painstakingly unraveled this mystery in the 70ies and 80ies, finally publishing her discoveries in 1996 in her book “Angkor Wat, Time Space and Kingship”. This book has now gone out of print, but it is available at the Internet Archive:

Through my vlog, I hope to give more publicity to this scientific aspect to ancient Hindu temple construction.
