PART 5 - ANGKOR
Angkor Preah Vihear is 4754 miles from Giza. This is 19.1% of the great circle circumference, or 68.754° (19.1% times π equals 60.00% and 68.754° times π equals 216.00°). The two great circle segments from the axis point to Giza and to Angkor Vihear are each 90°, or 180° combined. 180°/68.754° = 2.618. The ratio between both sides of this terrestrial triangle and the baselength of the triangle is 2.618 to one.

The image below is centered on Giza and the circle is 1,320 miles away. Lake Tana, the source of the Blue Nile, is west of Lalibela and right on this alignment. Also in the highlands of Ethiopia, north of Lalibela, is the sacred city of Axum. The radius of the Giza alignment is 9/10ths of the Angkor alignment: 1320/1466.6 = .9

Giza is 4,745 miles from Angkor Wat. The midway point along the great circle path from Giza to Angkor Wat is at approximately 26° 15' N 70° 00' E, in the Indus Valley. This is approximately 100 miles east of Mohenjo Daro, closer to the unexcavated Indus Valley city of Ganweriwali. This location is also within one degree of being exactly antipodal to Easter Island. The circle is 2,372.5 miles away from the midpoint in the Indus Valley. As this alignment follows the course of the Nile in Egypt, it comes close to several ancient Egyptian sites in addition to Giza, including Abydos and Amarna. In Turkey, Catal Hoyuk is just inside this alignment.
In addition to crossing over the center of the alignments around Angkor and around Giza, the Indus Valley alignment also crosses over the perimeter of the other two alignments at significant locations (Lake Tana and Xian). The radius of the Angkor alignment times 1.618 equals the radius of the Indus Valley alignment and the radius of the Indus Valley alignment times .618 equals the radius of the Angkor alignment, demonstrating the φ relationship between the two alignments:
1,466.6 miles x 1.618 = 2,372.5 miles | 2,372.5 miles x .618 = 1,466.6 miles |
