Angkor Wat was first a Hindu, then subsequently, a Buddhist temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world.
The only other country flag in the world that features a national monument is the current flag of Afghanistan. Images from Angkor Wat also appear on many denominations of the riel banknote.
Construction on Angkor Wat began in the early 12th century and continued for about thirty-seven years. It was built in the time period of the Khmer, in the reign of Suryarmen II, who reigned from 1113 AD to 1150 AD.
A base jump is a parachute jump from the tops of tall manmade or natural objects, usually from 1,000 feet or less. Why base jump? Base jumpers throw themselves off tall buildings for the incredible buzz and the challenge. When they launch into space, base jumpers say they are chasing life instead of death.
“BASE”, as it is strictly written, is an ingenious acronym. It nails four kinds of fixed objects from which you can base-jump: buildings, antennas, spans (bridges), and earth (cliffs).
Base jumping is one of the world’s riskiest sports, with overall deaths in 2002 estimated at one in 60 participants.
