Sunset at preah Khan
Cambodia

Preah Khan located in the northeastern corner of Angkor is less visited but in my opinion boasts some of the most beautiful architecture amongst the many ruins in the whole of Angkor.

Built by Jayavarman VII circa 1911, at its height it hosts more than one thousand buddhist scholars and monks along with their many servants in this mini city which serves also as a university.

Here the view is taken at the northeastern corner of the massive walled city alonside the famous two-storey building which has the most unusual structure in the whole of Angkor - well-spaced round columns on two levels without stairway access. From afar it really has more in common with classical Greek architecture than with ancient Cambodian ones.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
