Koh Ker Temple: Mayan Pyramid In Cambodia

Koh Ker Temple: Mayan Pyramid In Cambodia

Located in northern Cambodia, Koh Ker is a remote archaeological site about 120 km away from the ancient temple Angkor Wat. The place is surrounded by the wild Cambodian jungle, the lonely temples and pyramid partly overgrown by the forest. The complex dated back to 10th century and first was discovered by French researchers Lunet de Lajonquière and Étienne Aymonier in the second half of the 19th century.

The main structure, Koh Ker Temple, is a stepped 7-tiered pyramid. The seven‑tiered pyramid called Prang was probably the state temple of Jayavarman IV. The pyramid is inside a great wall on a plain. It’s surrounded by an artificial lake. It raises towards the skies. Its length is 66 meters (216.54 ft.) and 40 meters (131.23 ft.).
The pyramid is well-preserved. It is constructed with the combination of processed volcanic rock laid inside the structure and sandstone blocks on the exterior. Exterior blocks are of different dimensions, and a combination of concave and convex, with four to six sides. Uneven dimensions resulted in the structural stability of the object, which is preserved until today.

Different from other Cambodian temples

This pyramid obviously isn’t like other temples in Cambodia. However, somehow the architects pushed it together with the temples. The term which is used for this pyramid is Koh Ker Temple, but almost all the elements for the pyramid as an energy machine are present here.
The pyramid is the most powerful shape when it comes to energy. It amplifies existing, natural sources of energy. The artificial construction materials are sandstone blocks (conductivity) and volcanic blocks (the presence of iron as an electromagnetic source). The constructed artificial lakes and channels around the pyramid allow for water flow, releasing negative ions as an energy source and using kinetic energy from the water stream.

The concentric squares (walls and terraces) become smaller, directing and focusing the terrain’s energy to the pyramid
There are seven levels of the pyramid. Seven is a sacred number in the Hindu religion. But odd and indivisible numbers, prime numbers, are also part of sacred geometry. Here they are used as well: 7, 11, and 13. The elements of sacred geometry amplify the energy.

Similarities between the Cambodian and Mexican pyramids

When we take a look at the Koh Ker Temple in Cambodia, and then compare it to the Mayan Temple located in Tikal, Guatemala you may see similarities in both constructions. How is this possible? Is it just a coincidence that there are several temples and constructions all over the world that are similar to other constructions but separated thousands and thousands of kilometers? What if these two mysterious civliizations linked to each other?

Some researchers call it “independent parallel development.” When people have the same environment, knowledge, and tools, they create similar same constructions without ever having been in contact with each other.
Both Cambodia and Mexico have a tropical climate with warm temperatures throughout the year.   Both locations cradled advanced ancient civilisations in the past, who left behind incredible architectural heritage. Is it possible that using the same technical skill and tools both civilisations set out to build a stairway to heaven, a tower to the stars – pyramid?
Thousands of pyramids are spread all over our planet, and it is not a simple coincidence that many of these structures are very similar in design and have the same properties and elements. Many researchers believe the purpose of the pyramids all over the world is very similar and still remains mystery for us.
