PepperThat almost 900 years ago a man named Suryavarman II tried to construct heaven on earth. He did not succeed. But the temple mountain that his people built in what is now Cambodia in nothing short of miraculous. It would be an architectural feat even today to erect a seamless edifice with stones weighing as much as 8,000 pounds apiece. Angkor Wat, the largest religious monument in the world, erected around 1150, was built wihout the use of mortar; it is held together by weight and friction. The complex is a sculpture of roughly a square mile. Its sandstone relief carvings–of Hindu legends and Khmer battle scenes–are among the world’s finest.
