After breakfast, visit to the pre-Angkorian temples of Sambor Prei Kuk, is an attempt to apply 21st century technology to 7th century cultural heritage. Sambor Prei Kuk (SPK) provides the earliest record of Khmer temples, predating better known (and better preserved) Angkor Wat by several centuries. Hence, the study of SPK is crucial for understanding the Khmer, pre-Angkorian tradition; and the subsequent development of temple cities such as Angkor Wat in Cambodia. As befitting an important cultural heritage site, SPK has been studied by archeologists and other scholars for many years. Their work has provided much knowledge of the culture and the period, especially about the eastern expansion of Hinduism along the trade routes from its Indic origins into Southeast Asia—one of the great cultural assimilations in humanhistory. From the fifth century until the sixteenth century, this diasporic interaction created a unique blend of canonical, local, and borrowed cultural and artistic traditions, which can be seen today in the remains of the many temple complexes along the Pacific Rim.
