The Temple of Angkor Wat at the Universal Exhibition. This temple, the whole of which forms an imposing mass, and which is the exact reproduction of the one in Cambodia, symbolizes with majesty and harmony, the prestige of our domain in Asia. We see here the central staircase, which is of a slightly staggering verticality at first sight.
