A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Virtual Angkor

Virtual Angkor / Online

The Cambodian metropolis of Angkor, a Buddhist temple complex and the world’s largest religious monument, attracts visitors from across the globe. And no wonder. The temples are a prime example of Khmer architecture brought to a level of exceptional sophistication. Winning the Roy Rosenzweig Prize for Innovation in Digital History, “Virtual Angkor” takes you on a virtual tour through Angkor Wat itself, the pink sandstone Banteay Srei, and Ta Prohm (as seen in the 2001 film Lara Croft: Tomb Raider). This tour—a collaboration between archaeologists, historians, and virtual-history specialists—has you feeling that you’re almost there, in Siem Riep, Cambodia. —E.C.
