East Courtyard of Preah Khan
Cambodia

Taken inside the third enclosure between the Hall of Dancers and the east entrance to the main buildings of the massive Preah Khan, the view encompasses some of the well-preserved sculptures on the hallway inculding some fine examples of the celestial Apsaras. Opposite the hallway once thrusting its way up is the remains of a giant silk-cotton tree that has been cut down as it had become to unstable to its supporting structures.

Built by the omnipresent Jayavarman VII in the 12th century, Preah Khan is more of a buddhist university than a temple. It also houses some of the most unique and intriguing buildings in the whole of Angkor like the Greek-style two-storey library a stone's throw away from here.

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.
