Asia - Cambodia / Angkor Wat
Asia - Cambodia / Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat lies 5.5 km north of the modern town of Siem Reap, and a short distance south and slightly east of the previous capital, which was centred at Baphuon. It is in an area of Cambodia where there is an important group of ancient structures. It is the southernmost of Angkor's main sites. The initial design and construction of the temple took place in the first half of the 12th century, during the reign of Suryavarman II (ruled 1113 – c. 1150). Dedicated to Vishnu, it was built as the king's state temple and capital city. As neither the foundation stela nor any contemporary inscriptions referring to the temple have been found, its original name is unknown, but it may have been known as Vrah Vishnulok after the presiding deity. Work seems to have ended shortly after the king's death, leaving some of the bas-relief decoration unfinished. In 1177, approximately 27 years after the death of Suryavarman II, Angkor was sacked by the Chams, the traditional enemies of the Khmer. Thereafter the empire was restored by a new king, Jayavarman VII, who established a new capital and state temple (Angkor Thom and the Bayon respectively) a few kilometres to the north. In the late 13th century, King Jayavarman VIII, who was Hindu, was deposed by his son in law, Srindravarman. Srindravarman had spent the previous 10 years in Sri Lanka becoming ordained as a Buddhist monk. Hence, the new King decided to convert the official religion of the empire from Hindu to Buddhist. Given the constant political corruption of the time, citizens were quick to follow a faith founded on tranquility without a need for material gain and power. This made the conversion relatively easy. Hence, Angkor Wat was converted from Hindu to Theravada Buddhist use, which continues to the present day. Angkor Wat is unusual among the Angkor temples in that although it was somewhat neglected after the 16th century it was never completely abandoned, its preservation being due in part to the fact that its moat also provided some protection from encroachment by the jungle. One of the first Western visitors to the temple was Antonio da Magdalena, a Portuguese monk who visited in 1586 and said that it "is of such extraordinary construction that it is not possible to describe it with a pen, particularly since it is like no other building in the world. It has towers and decoration and all the refinements which the human genius can conceive of". However, the temple was popularised in the West only in the mid-19th century on the publication of Henri Mouhot's travel notes. The French explorer wrote of it: "One of these temples—a rival to that of Solomon, and erected by some ancient Michelangelo—might take an honourable place beside our most beautiful buildings. It is grander than anything left to us by Greece or Rome, and presents a sad contrast to the state of barbarism in which the nation is now plunged." Mouhot, like other early Western visitors, found it difficult to believe that the Khmers could have built the temple, and mistakenly dated it to around the same era as Rome. The true history of Angkor Wat was pieced together only from stylistic and epigraphic evidence accumulated during the subsequent clearing and restoration work carried out across the whole Angkor site. There were no ordinary dwellings or houses or other signs of settlement including cooking utensils, weapons, or items of clothing usually found at ancient sites. Instead there is the evidence of the monuments themselves. Angkor Wat required considerable restoration in the 20th century, mainly the removal of accumulated earth and vegetation. Work was interrupted by the civil war and Khmer Rouge control of the country during the 1970s and 1980s, but relatively little damage was done during this period other than the theft and destruction of mostly post-Angkorian statues. The temple is a powerful symbol of Cambodia, and is a source of great national pride that has factored into Cambodia's diplomatic relations with its neighbour Thailand, France and the United States. A depiction of Angkor Wat has been a part of Cambodian national flags since the introduction of the first version circa 1863. The splendid artistic legacy of Angkor Wat and other Khmer monuments in the Angkor region led directly to France adopting Cambodia as a protectorate on August 11, 1863. This quickly led to Cambodia reclaiming lands in the northwestern corner of the country that had been under Thai control since the Thai invasion of 1431 AD.Cambodia gained independence from France on 9 November 1953 and has controlled Angkor Wat since that time. During the midst of the Vietnam War, Chief of State Norodom Sihanouk hosted Jacqueline Kennedy in Cambodia to fulfill her "lifelong dream of seeing Angkor Wat." In January 2003 riots erupted in Phnom Penh when a false rumour circulated that a Thai soap opera actress had claimed that Angkor Wat belonged to Thailand
UNHCR News Story: Refugees return to Equateur province as UNHCR promotes reconciliation
UNHCR News Story: Refugees return to Equateur province as UNHCR promotes reconciliation
The colourful opening ceremony for Radio Racodo in Dongo, Equateur province. UNHCR/ C. Schmitt/ October 2011 Refugees return to Equateur province as UNHCR promotes reconciliation DONGO, Democratic Republic of the Congo, October 19 (UNHCR) – It's been almost two years now, but Elisabeth* can still hear the screams of her mother as she was raped by armed men in an orgy of violence sparked by a row over fish ponds in northern Congo's Equateur province. "They arrived very early in the morning. It was a Thursday. We did not even know it was war," said Elisabeth, recalling the attack on the small town of Dongo on October 29, 2009. "I was at the hospital. I hid behind the tall grass and saw three men disembowel a pregnant woman." It got worse. Filled with horror, she ran home. "Armed men were raping my mother in our house. After raping her they killed her. I was hiding in a hole, but I heard as she cried," said Elisabeth, still traumatized. She fled across the nearby Oubangui River and sought shelter in Republic of the Congo. She was one of more than 130,000 civilians to flee to neighbouring countries, mostly the Republic of Congo. A further 100,000 sought shelter in other parts of Equateur province, most of whom have since returned to their villages. Despite her apprehension, Elisabeth also chose to repatriate earlier this year to Dongo with her four children. Only about 2,000 other Congolese refugees have recrossed the Oubangui to return home, but many come over to check their lands on a regular basis. UNHCR has been helping these returnees and promoting reconciliation between the Enyele and Munzaya communities. "Life on the other side was difficult. We had a house to rent, but no money, no job and nothing to do. I came back to Dongo as soon as I heard that security had returned," explained Elisabeth, who now works as a social worker for UNHCR's local implementing partner, AIDES, helping other returnees rebuild their lives. News of their progress is reaching the refugees in Republic of Congo and people are returning on their own in a small, but steady, daily stream. Homes need to be rebuilt in Dongo – UNHCR funded construction of a new shelter for Elisabeth – but a market is up and running and people are finding ways to support themselves. Elisabeth is upbeat about the situation. "I say to my brothers living in the Republic of Congo that they can return. There is no war, everyone can return to the fields and children can attend school. We can even walk down the street late at night," Elisabeth said with a smile. "I visit people who have chosen to return home, I see what their needs are, I meet with the sick and I follow them. I'm here to help them restart their lives here. Here, everybody knows me," she added, explaining her work. UNHCR helps the spontaneous returnees by providing them with basic necessities such as plastic sheeting, sleeping mats, blankets, cooking utensils and mosquito nets. Its shelter programme helps the most vulnerable people rebuild their homes. In partnership with other agencies, UNHCR also runs a programme to facilitate reconciliation between the rival communities, which led to the signature of a non-aggression pact in March. As part of the reconciliation programme, a UNHCR-funded community radio station went on air earlier this month. Radio Racodo is based in Dongo and can also be listened to by refugees across the Oubangui. It was set up to facilitate information sharing and dialogue between the rival communities. Elisabeth enjoys listening to the radio. "If there are problems in the cities or neighbourhoods, we hear about it on the radio," she said. "I think it's a good way to consolidate reconciliation," she said, adding that she particularly enjoyed the programmes on conflict resolution, women's rights, health, hygiene and disease prevention. But while Elisabeth has begun rebuilding her life, the scars remain. "I cannot forget the screams of my mother. I hear them in my dreams," she told UNHCR, while adding: "I cannot forget, but I can forgive." * Name changed for protection reasons By Celine Schmitt in Dongo, Democratic Republic of the Congo
