This was my second big build. It only took six months or so of being on the back burner only 70% complete. I was that much done when someone else posted their own version (though not as good) and I shoved this build out of my mind in frustration.

This is a 1:0.9 scale model of the Angkor Wat Temple in Cambodia. I had to extend the length a bit because of the steps of the top level temple area, in real life, being super steep there. I have done (too much) extensive research on the temple to ensure the best representation of the real thing my mind and Minecraft could create.

Took me a bit to realize by the time I had finished this there were 2-4 others on the website I initially posted this to. As well as there's 3 other Angkor Wat's on this website, but I consider mine the most accurate... >.> (basically... "I spent so much time and effort making this thing it would be a shame not to share it and at least get one "good job!" on it.").

This schematic here is the temple proper including the front flat platform. I have tried to make the temple look like it did when it was a bustling community of worshipers and priests, minus beautiful paintings, wood paneling, or gigantic doors, though may add them later.

There's a bit more to the build than the pictures can show. Signs labeling things, the center shaft found by a frenchman years ago, the libraries, the vast hallways and nearly uncountable pillars (albeit the center shaft is a little more dressed up than the boring 27m deep hole they found with gold leaf/glass/dirt at the bottom).

Sizes:
This Schematic- 350x220x63
Temple proper (no front "porch")- 280x220x63
The center and steps to paradise only - 95x85x53

Additional Notes

The reason for not being 100%
I intend to do more to this build in the future.
-add the paneling
-finish the rest of the landscaping outside to include
--the moat surrounding the build
--the two libraries, road, and gate all much further west than the porch
--landscaping (trees etc.)
-perhaps add more redstone mechanisms to it (secret passages?)

This is really good and accurate because I'm in Cambodia on a holiday and I went to Angkor Wat for sunrise this morning. Good job!

is really cool i havent been to cambodia since exactly 1 year because i went with school it cost 3000 australian dollars to visit including tours, quads in phnom phen, taking a bus ride from phenom phen to siem reap, food for each night and morning and stuff, hotels (two) plane fairs from perth-BangKok-Phenom Phen and back the same way. visiting orphanages (new Hope), transport (bus/tuk tuk), a amazing race (we need to find and take pictures and answer some questions using tuk tuks as transportation), and a lot more (including movies once "hunger games catching fire").

this was the best expeirnce and cant wait for this to be full completed
