Overview

Angkor Wat is a Hindu temple in the capital of the flourishing Angkor Empire in Cambodia. It was erected by King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century. Its structure, which shows the beauty of symmetry, and the elegant relief decorations which adorn its walls attract people from all over the world.
The Angkor Wat Rubbing Society has donated rubbings of the relief decorations, which they’ve collected over four visits to Angkor Wat, to the museum. To commemorate this gift, we are opening an exhibition of these valuable rubbings to the public.
