This work features: ten new temple sites, an additional 180 pages with 86 new colour images; a foreword by His Majesty King Norodom Sihamoni of Cambodia; extensive accounts of temples and pre-Angkor sites; profiles the Phnom Penh National Museum; the hip town Siem Reap - the base for exploring Angkor; and, the unique flora and fauna around the great lake, Tonle Sap. Over 32,000 copies are in print. The great legacy of the ancient Khmer civilization, the temples of Angkor cover an area stretching across 77 square miles in northwest Cambodia. These monuments, built between the ninth and 15th centuries - the classic period of Khmer art, are unrivalled in architectural greatness. They are, undoubtedly, one of the wonders of the world, astounding in their splendour and evoking a real sense of awe. This beautifully illustrated book contains background information on Khmer history, religious beliefs and legends, as well as descriptions of the architectural features. The comprehensive monument-by-monument guide to the sites includes detailed maps and plans, plus information about ten newly accessible temple complexes. Practical information on hip Siem Reap and historic Phnom Penh is included.
