Keeping with the Angkor theme for this past few days, here’s a website I found about the art and architecture of Angkor, the Angkor Blog.
The name is really a misnomer – it’s not really a blog, but rather a well-indexed information site. Sidestepping the usual touristy information about Angkor Wat and how to get around Siem Reap, this site focuses mainly on the temples, the iconography and the mythology that is depicted on the bas-reliefs and scultpure of Angkor. Plenty of pictures and videos so that you know what is being talked about, as well as links to primary texts like the Mahabharata and the Ramayana to explain the various events depicted in art.
That’s it for the series of features on Angkor! If all goes well, I should be returning home today and archaeological news updates will resume tomorrow.
