The purpose of the project wants to create an App show a lively sculpture of Sambor Prei Kuk as a model for other temple like Angkor Wat or Bayon. The sculptures on the brick or sandstone wall represented of divinities in Hinduism, Buddhism or daily life of priest or people in ancient time. This App will help tourist understand the sculpture what Khmer ancestor wants to tell us. The project we show a special cause of Bokator (Khmer martial arts), which found in Engraved brick medallion inner wall of Prasat Yeay Poan (South group) of Sambor Prei Kuk, depicts the mythical event with the Goddess Durga fighting lion.

Furthermore, the earliest evidence of this martial art is found on walls and galleries of the 9th to 13th centuries, such as Preah Ko, Banteay Srei, Baphuon, Angkor Wat and Bayon Temple. The Bokator has a solid foundation in Cambodian culture, daily life and has become a symbol of Khmer civilization to date.
