Item description for The Khmer Empire: Cities and Sactuaries from the 5th to the 13th Century by Claude Jacques & Philippe Lafond...

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. Thus the reader is taken on a virtual tour of exquisite Khmer architecture - from Preah Vihear perched on a steep cliff overlooking the Cambodian plain, to the mysterious and extensive site of Preah Khan of Kompong Svay and the elaborately carved temple-in-the-forest of Beng Mealea, to mention but a few. Based on a lifetime of study and research, the author speculates as to the origins and reasons behind each site and how the Khmer empire functioned over many hundreds of years.
The book includes site plans, old photographs, aerial shots of the ancient cities and detailed photographs showing the reliefs and other magnificent carvings.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Khmer Empire: Cities and Sactuaries from the 5th to the 13th Century?

The Khymer Empire  Mar 23, 2008
Excellent value for a very interesting book. It arrived less than a week after I ordered it
The Khmer Empire  Jun 4, 2007
The Khmer Empire, Cities and Sanctuaries from the 5th to the 13th Century is a fantastic book with up to date detailed information about the most important khmer architecture in Cambodia, Thailand and Laos. The information is complete including maps, floor plans, photographs and a chronology of the Khmer Kings. Lacking is a chronology of the sites. This book is a must for those interested in the Khmer culture, architecture, temples , archaeology and history. It is certainly helpfull to understand the importance of each monument not only before visiting the sites but also after visiting them.Angkor and the Khmer Civilization (Ancient Peoples and Places)Angkor: Cambodia's Wondrous Khmer Temples, Fifth Edition (Odyssey Illustrated Guide)
