Description

The great temple complex of Angkor Wat, the architectural gem of the Khmer dynasty, was built between the ninth and fifteenth centuries. It rises 200 feet from the Cambodian jungle floor like a gigantic mandala, its walls adorned throughout with scenes from the Hindu epic Ramayana and legends of the god Vishnu and his incarnation, Krishna, as well as with Buddhist imagery. Jean-Pierre Grandjean's miniature photo essay conveys the atmosphere of the temple complex in all its ruined beauty, with special attention to its art and architecture.
