a web-based information resource on Cambodia and Cambodians


Our gratitude to Manida Muy and Allan Lim for submission of these photographs to the Khmer Institute.

For more information on Khmer art and architecture, we recommend the excellent guidebook Angkor: An Introduction to the Temples by Dawn Rooney, Sculpture of Angkor and Ancient Cambodia by Helen Jessup and Thierry Zephir, and Angkor: Splendors of the Khmer Empire by Marilia Albanese.

Note: We have attempted to date the monuments as accurately as possible. Nevertheless, some dates of construction are not definitive as they are still in dispute by scholars and/or the monuments were built and rebuilt during different periods of time. Monuments labeled (T) are located in present-day Thailand.
