A virtual visit

A virtual visit to Sambor Prei Kuk
I haven't mentioned it before, but you may be interested to visit this website which is putting together a virtual reconstruction project of the central temple at Sambor Prei Kuk, near Kompong Thom, essentially an attempt to apply 21st century technology to 7th century cultural heritage. This work is being undertaken by the University of California, who are aiming to make the history of Sambor Prei Kuk more accessible through a virtual visit. Similar efforts have been made by the Monash University team in Australia to provide a look at the life and times of Greater Angkor during its heyday in the 13th century. Visit Nat Geo for a look at their work.
