Churning sea is believed as one of Indian mythology; however, we can see the sculpture of this myth in the bas-relief panel at the East gallery (panel 4) of Angkor Wat. In Cambodia, this myth is one of the most popular mythologies which illustrates the war between the devas (gods) and the asuras (demons). Our ancestor sculpted the best scene of the Churning Sea in Angkor Wat during our medieval time. Due to this reason, there are a lot of controversial topics regarding to whether Cambodian stole this myth from India or not. However, a lot of evidence has found and proven that Cambodian did not steal it, but instead we also have this myth because of Indianization, just like the story of Ramayana which mostly country in Southeast Asia have.
