The temples of Angkor are one the world's most impressive archaeological treasures. The extensive network of ancient temples in Cambodia - a magical world of carved gods, weathered masonry, tangled vegetation and orange-robed monks, so long off-limits to Western visitors - are evocatively presented in Steve McCurry's unique style. An introduction by John Guy - an authority on the cultural history of Southeast Asia - provides an informative introduction to the history and architecture of the site and also explains its religious history and modern usage. Designated a World Heritage site, the temples of Angkor are a great attraction to tourists and archaeologists alike, and are a popular pilgrimage destination for the faithful. McCurry shows these many facets in grand panoramas of the architecture, intimate portraits of the life of the monks and studies of wonderful sculptures (which are displayed in separate sections of the book on textured paper).
