    You do not like to pay attention.
    see the bold part. That’s wat i was responding to.

    but i want point out that in khmer “prasat” is written like this:
    ប្រាសាទ (prah-saht) NOT “Preah sat”

    You told us it means castle and we told you that the word also means “monument” and “temple”.
    that’s what we have been trying to tell you.

    Also, Angkor alone means “city”
    Angor Wat = the city of temples
    Angkor Wat is one of the temples in THE city.

    Angkor Wat is a temple…if you go to khmer wat or temples in Cambodia, the monks do not live where they pray or where they do ceremonies. They live in other buildings.
    Angkor Wat was the same way. That’s why there were many houses and huts around the temple ground.

    It’s Okay to refuse the true, but remembers 30 years from now you will see nothing different to represent Khmer culture. Just kept that in mind.

    I hear that many of the locals call Angkor Wat, Angkor Tauch. The largest temple of all the Angkor-era and they are calling it small.

    Remember that the word Angkor means City.

    So I don’t think Angkor Touch (or Angkor Thom) refers to the size of the temple but rather the size of the city and the amount of materials used to construct the city .

    I think they are talking about the size of the city and NOT Angkor Wat alone.

    The area that is called Angkor Thom is constructed in Bayon Style (face-towers) including the gateway into Angkor Thom (big city). This part of the city took more material to construct, there are more “buildings” and occupies a much bigger area.

    .

    Whereas Angkor Touch occupies less space (land).
    what’s there in Angkor Touch beside Angkor Wat?

    .

    (correct me if i’m wrong)

    They are calling the structure Angkor Tauch. I doubt that they are talking about the city. They call the Bayon, Angkor Thom. Off topic back to Cambodian Town.

    I never thought my posting about the Cambodia Town Facebook Page would turn out to be a discussion about temples. My question to “Impact” is: How have YOU contributed or made an impact (no pun intended) to the Cambodian community?

    Also, please click on the link below of a temple in Long Beach:

    Yeah, by go to shopping in long beach very often. Just to show my support. The temple in long beach that you show here is not that great,but it just a bit better than a house.
