Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world. A statue of Snake Goddess is in Angkor Wat. This goddess has five snakes on the top of her head same as Manasa. King Suryavarman II built the complex in the early 12th century in Yasodharapura, the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple.


Manasa Devi can also be approached as a form of Durga. In early ages, when gods were visible in the world, Daksha, the father of Sati, did not like Shiva and was against his marriage with his daughter. As a consequence of this, Sita burned herself in a fire celebration that Daksha organized one day. This outraged Shiva so much that he destroyed the celebration place and killed Daksha. Lord Shiva was so furious that his frenzy could even destroy the whole Earth. It was Lord Vishnu who stopped the Shiva's raging and destruction (Hindus are familiar with this type of dance as the Tandava celestial dance of destruction) with His Sudarshana Chakra, a sharp discus weapon, as the gods were afraid that Lord Shiva would destroy the whole planet. Lord Vishnu cut the Sati's dead body to pieces that fell on the ground. The places these pieces fell on are known as Shakti Peethas, or the most Holy Places of Goddess Shakti. Mansa Devi temple in Haridwar is one of such holy places where Goddess Manasa has a form of Goddess Durga.
