A Unique Angkor Wat no Replica

“The A copy of a UNESCO-listed Cambodian temple will soon spring up on the banks of the Ganges River. An Indian temple trust plans to spend $20 million over the next 10 years to recreate the 12th century wonder on a 40-acre plot of land, according to the Guardian. The 222-foot replica is expected to be the tallest Hindu temple in the world, according to the Agence France-Presse. India’s Angkor will go by the name of Virat Angkor Wat Ram Mandirhave and have a different presiding deity. Instead of Vishnu, the new temple will be dedicated to Ram, a deity who once, according to legend, crossed at that spot. The man behind the project, Kishore Kunal, told the Guardian he hopes the replica will give those who can’t afford a trip to Cambodia a chance to experience the “grandeur and splendor”of the original.” (Source)

From the cited content, India should more carefully reconsider on the above building project, since it will affect Cambodia’s interest. SOMEthing which makes or HARMs other people’ interest should be avoided. The world will be in peace if we all understand this. With your modern high-tech, you are able to invent what you want on your own. Not keeping on copying from other people’s idea.
