Structure protocivilization in Cambodia!

Found the oldest buildings protocivilization in Cambodia!

“In 1998, making his way by car from Vietnam to Thailand, we were not far from the place that I dreamed of to get a very long time, and I want to tell you. Moreover, today more and more people visit these places and more stuff comes online. Almost no one today does not have accurate information about these unique places of Power. And to have her.

Unfortunately in the second half of the 20th century were destroyed almost all the testimonies, archives and the keepers of the antiquities… Those monks who survived — were in Thailand and Myanmar, where I first heard about ancient unknown civilizations of the forerunners in this region.

Legends about the ancient Angkor I had already collected.

But Angkor as a little drawn to ancient culture, rather, someone tried to repeat the structure of the more ancient architects… And here I stumbled upon them! Since 1996 I occasionally was lucky enough to be in southern Cambodia, where I gathered information.

By that time, I had already the base of observations from our own studies conducted in India.

So I aimed, of course, digging information in this direction.

Gothic for

It is difficult to find the right words to describe impressions

of a Gothic Cathedral. They are high and reach for the sky endless

arrows of towers and turrets, visperhof, finials, pointed arches.

But more striking is not how much height. how much wealth

aspects. opening, when you circle around the Cathedral.

Gothic cathedrals are not only high, but also very

extended: for example Chartres has a length of 130 meters and

length of the transept is 64 meters, and to revolve around him

required to pass at least half a kilometer. And with each point

the Cathedral looks new. Unlike the Romanesque Church with its

clear, easily observable forms. the Gothic Cathedral is vast,

often asymmetrical and even heterogeneous in its parts: each of

its facades with their individual portal. Walls are not felt,

them as not.Arches, galleries, towers, some sites with

arcades, huge Windows, on and on – endlessly

complex, delicate open forms.And all this space

inhabited – the Cathedral both inside and outside is inhabited by a mass of sculptures (

in Chartres Cathedral around ten thousand sculptures).They

is not only the portals and galleries, but they can also be found Continue reading

Patom crater

Patom crater is one of the most mysterious places on the planet.

General information about the Patomsky crater

Patom crater is a conical hill of crushed limestone, located in the Bodaibo district of the Irkutsk region. The crater is a conical elevation, reaching 40 meters in height, its diameter slightly exceeds 180 meters. Covered with grey crushed limestone crater similar to a lunar crater, but unlike the craters on the Earth satellite, the Patom crater is located on the hillside, completely covered with taiga.

Cone Kolpakov would be correct to call a truncated cone – it is not crowned with a pointed top, but the top, which is a flat circular shaft in the center of which is located a funnel presumably of volcanic origin. The volume of the cone is about 230-250 thousand m3, the weight of the crater is estimated at one million tons. On the slopes of the crater are several larches, whose age was estimated at 200 years, and in the center of the crater in the heart of the inland hill grows a single tree age of about 70 years.

Patomsky crater, also known as Chebulinsky or Yavlinsky and as the cone Kolpakov – opened it in honor of geologist Vladimir Kolpakov. The local population proudly calls it “the Nest of fire eagle”, though prefers to avoid.

History of the study of the patomsky crater
