In Cambodia, ? – 20^{th} century, a unit of
length. In the 20^{th} century = 50 centimeters. (UN, 1966) Before metrication, 41 cm.

Using measurements of 200 dimensions of the temple of Angor Wat
(built in the 12^{th} century), researchers calculated that the value most nearly
dividing the dimensions a whole number of times is 43.545 centimeters, which makes
that number a likely estimate for the magnitude of the *hat* at the
time of construction.^{1}

As the measurements of the temple were made to the nearest millimeter, the last two digits of the calculated value are not meaningful.

In Turkey, a unit of length, about 2.6310 millimeters.

In Nepal, a unit of length = 2 *bitta* = ½ yard = 45.72
centimeters.
