The List

Understanding the devata (sanctified women) depicted in Angkor Wat and other Khmer temples is a wide-ranging investigation. While subjects related to Khmer history are obvious priorities to explore, other topics are more innovative.

In the course of our research we discover many people and ideas that are essential to our study…we also find links that are too compelling to ignore for one reason or another.

The following links,  in alphabetical order. are in two groups: Khmer Culture: Past, Present & Future and links that are Outside the Box. Explore and see what surprises await. These links are chosen entirely by  and we welcome your suggestions for more.
