The Revival of
Ancient Angkor

The temples and ruins of Angkor are the remains of a city. It was the capital of an empire, which flowered from the 9th to the 15th century. Then it was abandoned and sank into the jungle.

The temples tell us the story of ancient glory, of beauty, and of bygone power.

They are still lively places where Ancestral Spirits and the Buddha wait to be revered, where pretty Goddesses are showing the “Khmer Smile” and blessing you. And where at night the Hindu Gods roam, who were driven from their temples.

Visit the temples, listen to their story and bring Ancient Angkor to life in your mind.
