Got a guide and went to some temples and ruins. What an amazing place! Such jungle! Twenty-five square miles and about twenty buildings.
The Khmers, who built these things, were a very warlike people who made constant raids on neighboring tribes. At one time, they had enormous territory (Indo-China, Thailand, and part of South China.) Many theories are advanced for the disappearance of the Khmers.
Much information about the people has been gotten from the Sanskrit writings on walls and ages of temples are known 1000 AD.
