Angkor: History & Temples

The Khmer civilisation centred on Angkor was one of the most remarkable wonders of the ancient world. From the 8th to the 13th centuries, a succession of Hindu and Buddhist kings created magnificent temples in stone, adorned with elaborate carvings. The temples of Angkor have recently been listed in the top three World Heritage Sites by members of the public and all the key temples of Angkor are included here, profusely illustrated in colour, with site plans and suggested daily itineraries. 'Angkor: History & Temples' is a collaboration between the French scholar, Claudes Jacques, and one of the world's leading photographers, Michael Freeman and this fully revised and updated guide will be a must to those visiting the site for a first time, those revisiting and indeed as a standalone book for the armchair traveller. The book includes 47 temple plans, 5 area maps, suggested itineraries and is lavishly illustrated throughout.
