[ November 26th 2010 ]

Rajan Zed, the president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, has announced a temple located in Angkor, Cambodia, which featured in the motion picture Lara Croft Tomb Raider, has been renamed 'Angelina Jolie Temple' by locals, reports The Guardian.

"It's a 12th-century site called Ta Prohm; it is otherwise known as Old Brahma and was initially named Rajavihara or the royal monastery," he said. "Now it's popularly called the Angelina Jolie Temple."

Rajan Zed hopes the actress will use her public profile to raise awareness of conservation efforts in the region. "I'd urge Angelina Jolie to raise awareness about better preservation of this world heritage, as more needs to be done to safeguard the temple complex and its surroundings."
