ABOUT THE BOOK


The Khmer civilization centered on Angkor was one of the most remarkable to flourish in Southeast Asia. Between the 8th and the 13th centuries, many Hindu and Buddhist kings created magnificent temples in stone. Their elaborate carvings and intricate architecture amazed the first Europeans who visited in the 19th century and continue to fascinate today, when after many years of political turmoil, Angkor is once again accessible. The renowned French scholar, Claude Jacques, has studied Angkor and its history for the past 30 years, while Michael Freeman has made many photographic trips there during 15 years. Ancient Angkor embodies the fruits of their collaboration and includes new research and discoveries made during recent excavations. Detailed plans and descriptions unravel the intricate reliefs of Angkor Wat and the Bayon, while small but interesting temples not covered in other books are also described. Grouping the temples into easy-to-visit itineraries and helpful hotel and travel information, Ancient Angkor will serve as a history of the temples in its own right and an invaluable companion guide. 412 color illustrations.
