AbstractEstablishing culture contents require their future application in the various industrial sectors from the early phase of planning. Basically a culture contents' planner should have one thing in their mind: it should be user friendly. If the outcome of culture contents has neither any user nor any application, it already has neither value nor benefit. Due to the indifference among scholars in humanities, there have been delays in finding, planning, and establishing culture contents which are of industrial value and of personal benefit. Hindu myth perhaps is one of the undervalued areas by the scholars in this field. In fact the correct knowledges of Hindu myth allows us to evaluate and to understand various cultural properties scattered around India, South east Asia, and Central Asia. This paper shows how Hindu myth sculpted in the first floor's corridor at the main temple of Angkor Wat has been developed as digital culture contents and how the outcome of this contents can be utilized among the various industrial sectors. From the experience of establishing Angkor Wat as digitally usable culture contents, several Buddhist cultural properties could be emerged as a possible candidate which has both industrial value and personal benefit: the Seokgulam cave and the tripitaka koreana's library in Korea and the great st?pa in Sanch and Barhut in India.
