An unknown tribe has left valuable clues in the form of 'body jars' found around the Cardamom Mountains.
National Geographic said:
Perched in some cases on precarious cliff ledges, centuries-old log coffins—such as this one, pictured alongside researcher Nancy Beavan—and "body jars" are the only known traces of an unknown Cambodian tribe.
Thanks Saru. Great article. Khmers are sure interesting. Brainstorming told me-Plains of Jars...
Seems to me that we have lot to learn about Khmer empire and people who lived there.
People who built Ankgor Wat deserves more researching and exploring. Since Ankgor Wat was first Hindu temple I wonder does this rituals have origin in India?
Btw recently I found out that Ankgor Wat is largest religion temple in the world.
The anthropologists have a brazen cheek to say that they put their dead 160' high in the cliffs to protect the remains from poachers! They should have put them higher to protect them from the anthropologists!!!
