Royal Palace(金邊皇宮), Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Cambodia

The Royal Palace in Phnom Penh was constructed twice: The first construction took place in 1438. Then the Royal Family moved to Oudong, north of Phnom Penh. The second Palace was built in 1866 and stands to the present day. The Royal Palace compound is 435 meters long by 421 meters wide and a high wall, which is decorated with Seima-shapes, surrounds the complex. It was constructed in 1866-1870 during the reign of His Majesty King Norodom. 

金邊皇宮最先建於1438年,後皇室遷金邊之北而棄用,到1866年重建,就是今天的皇宮,長435米,寛421米,外有城牆,是座典型的高棉式建築,充滿宗教色彩,多為黃白兩色,黃色代表佛教,白色代表婆羅門教,外觀金碧輝煌,氣派不凡。現今皇宮內仍有皇室居住僅部分開放給遊客參觀。

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.
