Explore the mythical temple ruins in Asia

The interior of the 700 m2 Asia Dome is based on the legendary Angkor Wat temple ruins in Cambodia, complete with the calls of the gibbons and refreshing mist off the cascading waterfalls. Wander your way through the temple ruins keeping eye out for the comodo dragon - not only one of the biggest lizards in the world, but also one of the most feared.

 

 

The gibbon's song

The gibbons break out spontaneously in noisy song at any time of day to let everyone else in the jungle know whose territory they are in.

 

 

Did you know that the gibbons' song can be heard miles away?

The world's biggest lizard

The komodo dragon can reach almost 3 metres in length and weigh up to 165 kg – making it the biggest lizard in the world. What's more, it has a hunting technique that can seem a bit barbaric: It sneaks up on its prey, bites it, and then sits back to wait until it dies of the cocktail of poison and bacteria delivered. The poor victim can take days to die!

 

 

Temple ruins in the Asia dome

Our temple ruins in the Asia dome are inspired by the real thing at Angkor Wat. All that's left of the mighty temples at Angkor Wat is the sprawling but still spectacular ruins in northern Cambodia. Originally, this was the capital city of the Khmer empire from the 9th to the 15th centuries. The city was abandoned and its temples swallowed by the rainforest - and no one knows why!
