Angkor replica for India

A replica of Cam­bo­dia’s world-famous Angkor Wat temple will be built in the Indian state of Bihar within five years, the Mahavir Mandir Trust announced at the weekend.

The Trust is one of the largest Hindu NGOs in India and has announced the replica of the largest Hindu temple in the world, and also the largest religious structure in the world, will be even bigger than the real Angkor Wat.

Indian Embassy in Cambodia representatives said the announcement was probably a real plan but questioned its viability.

 The NGO said it intended to have the structure completed within 10 years.
