PREAH  KHAN /  Ta Phrom Temples -CAMBODIA      The city sheltered 10.000 persons, 1000 dancers
 and one Sanskrit  school .Originally it was a  Buddhist convent whose Buddha's representations were destroyed by Brahmanes ( Indian priests) and replaced by representations Hindus,  (A single Buddha representation stayed). To arrive in the center of the temple, a row of galleries and doors which become more and more low has measure that one approaches the centre (to show 
his respect). In the center, a stone, Stupa , Bouddha Satva which was brought in the XVth century. There're small holes in all the walls in the center of the building. Originally, in every hole was encased  some gold and diamonds, one says that all this was taken and resold by the Red Khmers. Magnificent sculptures of the gods , like Vishnu and Lakshmi (his wife), and the place of 3 Lingams   (sex of the Gods), circle on the base for Shiva, square for Brahma and octagonal for Vishnu.    One finds as in Ta Phrom, a luxuriant vegetation which resumed its rights.
