Angkor Wat Replica to be built in India
The BBC has reported that the state of Bihar in India is to be the home of a new, larger version of the iconic Angkor Wat temple. According to the article, the project will take 10 years to complete and cost an estimated 20 million US dollars. 
The new temple, slated to be the largest Hindu temple in the world will be called Virat Angkor Wat Ram, presumably dedicated to Vishnu, as Rama is an avatar of the Hindu deity, Vishnu. Angkor Wat itself is a Vishnuvaite temple built in the 12th century.
