Angkor is a fascinating, mysterious site, twice the size of Paris, encompassing a vast variety of structures dating from the ninth to the fifteenth centuries. This new guide is the first extensive scholarly study of Angkor to be published since Maurice Glaize's Les Monuments du groupe Angkor, the first edition of which dates back to 1944. Author Jean Laur has written his study based on his firsthand observations and experience of Angkor as former Director of Monuments of the site, and on his continuous studies and research on Khmer art and architecture, reinforced by more recent visits to the various sites from 1996 to the present day. It is the culmination of a lifetime's work. The main body of the guide presents detailed descriptions of over one hundred temples within the Angkor group - including the most frequently visited Angkor Wat - and a smaller selection of key monuments outside of this group. Each entry is extensively illustrated with maps, drawings (including details of bas-reliefs and temple cross-sections) and photographs by the author.

  • By Mrs. F. Griffiths on 5 November 2004

    This is the best book I have found on Angkor. Extremely thorough in its descriptions, accompanied by good photography.Not one to carry around but good to read before a trip and on your return home.I particularly like the way the bas-reliefs are explained.
