 SAMBOR PREI KUK
 
 

The Central Group
 
     

  The most ancient hinduist state of Indochina, goes back up to the 1st century A.D. and it is known on Fou Nan name which gave it the chinese. Its capital was situated in the current cambodian province of Prey Veng. The dynasty claimed to go down from Brahmane Kaundinya, having come from India.
Except for some sanscrits registrations among which the most ancient(former) date of the 3th century, all that we knows about this realm comes from Chinese texts. The first embassy of the Fou Nan in the court of China dates of the year 225. The Fou Nan collapsed in the 6th century, under the pressure of a vassal state, Kambuja of the North annexed Cambodia of the South. One of their kings, Içanavarman I, based its capital to Sambor Prei Kuk, for which we still admires the ruins, in the North-Est from Kompong Thom at 30 km

This complex groups together at least 176 monuments, among which 106 in a ray of 5 km.
Three complexes, dedicated to Shiva, were surrounded with two surrounding walls. They are towers in bricks, varied forms, square, oblong, octagonal, ten metres high on ten metres wide. The brick is very finely sculptured in strong relief whose decoration is typically of inspiration or Indian copy. (The lion is often represented. But this animal did not exist in Cambodia) The door's frames are in stoneware. Most of these temples date of the beginning of the 7th century, 600 years before Angkor Vat.
