Angkor Wat

10 Jun

The cumaers were Buddhist, and the Angkor Wat complex (which is larger than London and includes the world’s largest man-made body of water, the West Barai as well as nearly 250 waterways) has some carvings of the tops of linga in a man-made riverbed, a sacred waterfall. Linga (the plural of lingam) means ‘penis’ which was a sacred Hindu symbol (Buddhism derived from Hinduism) and the linga  were fertilising the water. There hasn’t been any evidence of yoni (vagina) worship found there. I wanted to post this as a sort of aside to the Hinduism/Kali post. (I need to make more categories or pages).Image
