Title : Kampuchea country of legend

Description :
The Kampuchea Country of Legend website contains an image database of temples in Cambodia compiled by enthusiast David MacCartney. There are also some descriptions of the temples but they are often only in French. By clicking on the temple thumbnails, a site visitor can access maps, photographs, and sometimes the relevant Google satellite aerial photograph. Also on this website, history of Cambodia, current cultural information, and descriptions of the Angkor religion can be found in French and English. Angkor Wat, probably the most famous Cambodian temple complex, built in the early 12th century, is a unique combination of two common Khmer architecture temple styles: the temple mountain and the galleried temple. The temple has many levels: the higher the level, the more exclusive.
