Originally published in 1926, this is the first study of the temple that many consider the crown jewel of the entire Angkor Wat complex. Written a decade after the temple’s rediscovery, these three groundbreaking essays by eminent French scholars discuss its architecture, iconography, history, and dating. The section on the Sanskrit and Khmer inscriptions found at the site is an invaluable tool for understanding this period of Khmer history and for illuminating aspects of its religious and daily life. Line drawings and photographs illustrate the study. Indispensable for the specialist, the volume will also appeal to the general reader interested in Southeast Asian architecture, history, and religion.
