Our GeoShow was about Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat stands for City of Temples. Angkor Wat is located in Cambodia and the Cambodian flag is the only flag with a structure on it. Hindu has 3 god’s, Shira is the destroyer god, Vishnu is the protector god, and the 3rd is Brahman, he is the creator god. The Angkor Wat is a temple that’s 3 levels tall. On the first level everyone could go on it, the second level only High Priest could go on it, and the 3rd level was only for the King and Queen. The Angkor Wat is the 7th wonder of the world. Angkor Wat was built in the early 12th century. In Cambodia the common car was a tuk tuk. Angkor Wat was never fully built. The Rainbow Bridge leads to the Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world. Angkor Wat didn’t make the new list of the 7 wonders of the world. Angkor Wat 50% of why people visit Cambodia. Angkor Wat stretches over 248 square miles. Angkor Wat faces the West because it represents Vishnu the protector god. Angkor Wat was shifted from Hindu to Buddhist use sometime around the late 13th century. Khmer bricks were bonded together almost invisibly by using a vegetable compound rather than mortar. And that’s the Angkor Wat.

We also learned that you have to manually flush the bathroom. We learned that they eat dried food. We also learned to not feed the wildlife.

A Blog Post about Angkor Wat
On September 21 we did a Geo Show about Angkor Wat. We learned that it took 32 years of construction to almost complete the Angkor Wat temple. Angkor Wat translates to “City of Temples” or “City Temple”. New temples and rains are being discovered nearly every year.
Angkor means City and Wat means temple and also when they get put together they make Angkor Wat and it means city temple. I also found out by doing a Geo Show a virtual field trip. Did you know that Angkor Wat is in Cambodia and is the largest religious monument in the world? Did you also know it didn’t make the new list of Seven Wonders Of The World? It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple of god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire.
We learned about Angkor Wat is really a cool place. Behind the temple is the only angel that has its teeth showing when it was smiling. There is gods and there names are Phantom, Shiba, vishnu, Brahma and Suryavarman. In the temple on the second floor is suppose to be Shiba but, when the head fell off they replace with Vishnu’s head. Some had six arms and some have eight arms. They have to pay to use the restroom and they have a pot to flush the toilet. They have a big tub of water. There are libraries in little building on each level in the corner. There was a destroyer god as well.
