The Khmer civilization centred on Angkor was one of the most remarkable in Southeast Asia. Between the 8th and the 13th centuries, a succession of Hindu and Buddhist kings created magnificent temples in stone adorned with elaborate carvings. Ancient Angkor embodies the fruits of a collaboration between renowned French scholar, Claude Jacques, and photographer Michael Freeman.
Temples are grouped into easy-to-visit itineraries, and with comprehensive plans, useful hotel and travel information, Ancient Angkor is an invaluable companion guide.
