About this title

Synopsis:

The monuments of Cambodia are interpreted in the broadest sense tso that the book includes an anthology of translations from Khymer, Sanskrit, Chinese and other texts, and an essay "The Discovery of Khymer Monuments by the West". Other features are plans of monuments and sites, maps and drawings; a chronological chart; recommended further reading; in the list of museums in the United Kingdom and North America containing art and artefacts from the Kymer civilisation
The awe-inspiring temple complex of Angkor Wat was the final and most glorious flowering of five centuries of culture in ancient Cambodia, yet it is only the peak of a great civilisation, that of the Khymers, which flourished from the ninth to the thirteenth century. The whole scope of this era, including the fantastic monuments in stone which is produced, is here revealed in lively text and magnificently complemented by 111 full-colour photographs, all taken especially for this volume. The views range from panoramic aerial pictures to close top of architectural detail, including many works in Nmuseums rarely visited
