A team of archaeologists has unearthed a large statue in Angkor Wat temple, in Cambodia, believed to have once stood at the door of a former hospital complex.

The nearly two-meter-high work is believed to date from late 12th century and early 13th century and was discovered during an excavation last week, said Long Cosal, who is responsible for the complex.

It was buried 40 cm underground and was found during excavations of a hospital built during the reign of King Jayavarman VII. The agency Apsara announced that the arms and legs of the sandstone statue had been broken, but the body and head are in perfect condition.

This find is the most important in Angkor since two giant Buddha statues were found in 2011.

Angkor Wat, capital of the Khmer Empire.

The Angkor Archaeological Park, a World Heritage Site, contains the remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, dating from the 9th to 15th centuries. At the peak of its power, the city and its hundreds of temples had more than a million inhabitants, making it one of the most populated pre-industrial centers in the world.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
