Do you think Angkor Wat could've been built by Khmers. I meant how can khmers built such sophisticated structure? I think it must have been built by the indians. what do you guys think?

I think the Indian Brahmins who were the ones built it. Surely the natives couldn't have been that advance to build such huge pile of rubble.

Angkor wat was built by Cambodian. Do you think Pho or whatever noodles was made by those stupid looking dumb brain Vietnamese? I think Chinese made them all and pass it to those dumb Vietnamese and the name was transferred to Pho and became Vietnamese.

I don't think the Vietnamese can invented any foods beside the mixed of Chinese and Khmer krom.

Absolutely was built by my ancestors.

I'm Pretty Sure Khmer's built It. beerchug.gif and I am Pretty sure Khmer Hindus built it. I am sure ancestors of modern khmer built it biggthumpup.gif

the khmer buit it, the khmer king built it wasn't it?..im not sure.

The builders could have been a mixture of Cambodians and Javanese.

I've always thought that Jayavarman was Javanese and Cambodia and Thailand were part of a Javanese kingdom...

The ancient city of Angkor including Angkor Wat istelf were built by indianized khmers. I think a lot of people mistake Khmers in ancient times and the Khmers of today. We were a heavily hindu state, but abandoned it and adopted Theravada buddhism after the collapse of Angkor. This is probably why most people argue that the original creators weren't Khmers, hence the fabrication of Khom and Khamen.

why the heck not? i mean how about the stonehenge? in fact they were even considered more "uncivilized". khmer were great once.

the statue faces at ankor and vicinity clearly depict khmers and not indians

ANGKOR WAT was BUILT by KHMERS.
Point_Dexter
I think the traveling Jewish Hybrid Giants from the land of Titania built it with the aid of refugee Atlantian archritechs, slave labor from the local negritos craftsman, helped by levatating force of the Greyling Aliens and there UFO's from Sector 5 of the Vega star System.

duuuuuuy!
Sirikittong
The Great angkor wat was built and engineered by the Khmer Empire and the citizenry that lived inside the vast expanse of that empire.

It is the jewel of Cambodia.

IMO.
transtic
Point Dextor is the closest.

Angkor Wat was actually the monument of the great race of ancient Uranuslings. In the year 1400, earth years that is, those Uranolings fell under the power of close neighouring planets. They decided to evacuate their best, on the way to their new home, they dropped many objects from their shuttles, one of which was the Angkor Wat and it's complexes, they fell all over Southeast Asia.. in the Khmer Empire. What was strange was the fact that the carvings depicted many scenes that were strikingly similar to the reallife events of the Angkorian kingdom. TRUE STORY YA'LL!
Point_Dexter
I now believe it was an outpost(top level) for the Preditor Aliens, after seeing that "Preditor Vs. Alien. Movie. Alogn eith the Pyramidss and machu pichu. Theres a metropolitian under there.

Or maybe its a place built by Atlantians 40,000 years ago to hold the time travling orb, based on the Tomb_Raider Movie.

Or maybe it was built by the Khoms who are different from the Khamens, according to old Thai History Books.

Or maybe it was built by Giants, according to Khmer Fairy Tale before it became a French Archeilogical site.

I think you are definitely dreaming, living in another planet or collected insufficient knowledge of khmer history.

There are adequate supporting texts, facts, evidences that discovered by many explorers in the earliers centuries.

There are many texts issued in Cambodia and abroads. Therefore, there are plenty of books to review. You are literally guessing.

A matter of not understanding Khmer History, as a result of not clearly viewing the texts, you would not believed that KHMER could built something magnificent.

It's abite of mystery, I think, but nonetheless without a doubt Khmer built Ankor Wat.
jompa
This is obviously a very rediculous thread and should not even get this much attention. IF you are really interested in knowing the "Truth" than do some research and reading. There are many article this topic. Many research and archaelogical studies have been done and it has been PROVEN that Khmers are the builders. If your egotiscal and racist mind cannot accept that fact, than it's your problem to deal with!! icon_rolleyes.gif

REALLY, please go read, instead of starting flaming racial wars online!!!

If you really don't believe than just go to Cambodia and you will see people who actually know how to carve, whether it be from wood or stone. The skills have been carried for many centuries...from our ancestors.

Now, take your racist mind and go else where!!!!!!!

Thank You.

That was a dumb question. That's the first time I've encountered anyone (in this day and age) questioning whether or the Khmers built Angkor Wat.
chosenone22
I was built by Khmers. Maybe some of the engineers and architects were Indian or Indian educated Khmers. But most definately Khmer labor. So they built it. =)

I'll second that.

On the sarcastic note, Angkor Wat was actually built by a bunch of space monkeys that were enslaved by the evil monkey Majojo. Majojo ruled the empire for many years until the Vietnam princess merry him and produce little monkeys that build more temples.

Why do you think there are so many monkeys in Seam Reap?

That made as much sense as this thread icon_rolleyes.gif
sombattJeat
YES. biggthumpup.gif Khmers capable of doing anything. On the other hand, all the scupture on the Angkor wall can't be conclude that it is Indian. The indroduction of Hinduism then Buddhism is the main religion in Kampuchea, therefore, those kings built such sophisticated structure to honor on what they belive. So i think religion is playing an important role. not the indian. icon_smile.gif

dooma
Why don't Khmers use their architecture skills and experiences to build modern buildings? Khmers buildings and infrastructure are pathetic looking.
AEROFORCE1
I think they can Khmae is d master in tame Elephant as I know about Khmae surin.
they use these tame elephant to drag d big stone ,perhaps they use an elephant to drag d boat that is carrying stone.
Chickens
Yea elephant help a lot, and use crane technology to lift stones up. Cranes have been around for thousands of years. It's not a real secret technology. Everyone used it to build big buildings long ago, and they still use it to build big buildings now. All those skyscrapers built using the same basic crane technology as thousands of years ago. Only difference is they are now mechanised.

Angkor Wat needs more publicity. It looks way kewler than Roman Colosseum, Athenian Acropolis, and stuff like that. I think it'd be kewler if modern Southeast Asian buildings incorporated more of the traditional Southeast Asian architectural aspects or motifs. The Petronas Towers of Malaysia in a way look kind of like it does.

Taipei 101 in Taiwan looks like a bamboo tree decorated with Chinese motifs on it's base. American governmental buildings are designed to look like Ancient Greek Buildings. No need for Southeast Asia to be shy at this point in time hahaha.

Point_Dexter
Elephants were the Tractors of that time.

Theres even a new theory arising that the Baray/Moats were not ment for irragations(proven by SAT Scans) but rather a docking staion for huge stones, where workers transport and transform the rock. When I was swimming in the barays i notice the water was pure and clear due to the sandy bottom. That sand on the bottom can only be found in the baray. If that sandy bottom is the granulated byproduct of the stones from Phnom Kulen, then the theory of Baray Stone docking could be true. This makes sense because during Angkorian times, water highways transportation was more effiecnt then dry roads.

Your topic really make me sick. Trying to put down the Khmer race. Angkor was built by Khmer King and if Indian did built them, they would have been in the middle of New Delhi.

As I know Angkor wat is a religious structure. Would Angkor style look good in modern building? I don't think so. Have you been to Cambodia? Before you let any $hit come out from your mouth, use you eyes.

Why underestimate us? why dont ask the egyptian about their PyramidS? Its ours, and it was built by us... no wonder. We do have proves and evidence about this. Everyone in the world acknowledge that we are the one who establish Angkor Wat.
Sovanna Phoum
Cambodia is home to one of the world’s most impressive architectural marvels, the Angkor Complex. Located near Siem Reap, the Angkor Complex is comprised of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Bayon, Banteay Srei, Ta Prohm, and many other monuments built between the 9th and 13th Century covering 600 square kilometers when the Khmer Empire was at its peak. The ancient Khmer kingdom did not begin to seep into the European echelons of culture and civilization until it was discovered in the 19th century. The discovery shocked the world as nobody could believe anything so glorious could eclipse Egypt for its majestic feats of architecture.

The Angkor complex represents the apex of the Khmer creativity and splendor of the Khmer Empire. Its magnificence rivals the Seven Wonders of the World. Of the Angkor Complex, Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom are the most impressive. Of the two, Angkor Wat is the most breathtaking architectural masterpieces left standing in the world today. The Angkor is definitely the Khmer signatures.

Believe it or not, Angkor Wat was probably the wealthiest city in the world at it's height. It was certainly superior to any European urban settlement.
