The Khmer Empire: Cities and Sactuaries from the 5th to the 13th Century - Claude Jacques, Philippe LaFond

€ 62.95

Fotoboek over de Khmer Keizerrijk - the Khmer empire stretched from Angkor in Cambodia as far west as Muang Singh on the border of present-day Burma and Thailand and as far north as Wat Phu on the banks of the Mekong river. Hundreds of temples and thousands of shrines marked the territory of this powerful kingdom. Following on from the great success of "Angkor - Cities and Temples", the renowned scholar and epigraphist, Claude Jacques, explores the achievements and developments of the Khmer people from the 5th to the 13th century. Beginning with the early pre-Angkorean site of Funan and ending with the reign of the great Khmer king, Jayavarman VII, the author journeys beyond the well-known sites around Angkor Wat, to reveal the marvels of many temples hitherto inaccessible to visitors.
