The Huffington Post says “Angkor Wat lies just outside of Siem Reap, Cambodia. The temple site was built by Suryavarman II and represents Khmer architecture, which was primarily religious in nature. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, the ruins drew nearly 2 million visitors last year.”

Also, Siem Reap-based Peter Olszewski of the Phnom Penh Post has a news story about “Florida-based researcher, publisher and robot manufacturer Kent Davis is rapidly gaining an international reputation as the sleuth of Siem Reap, a new age detective delving into what he sees as one of the greatest mysteries of ancient Angkor Wat – the 1780 images of anonymous and mostly bare-breasted women depicted in carvings throughout the iconic structure.
