Opening the Eyes

Deciphering the History of the Khmer Empire

Streaming Video - 2009
Rate this:
The gigantic Angkor temple complex in Cambodia is a testament in stone to the Khmer-miles of inscriptions that only Professor Thomas Maxwell and a handful of other experts can decipher. But time is running out as erosion and the ever-increasing influx of tourists take their toll on the carvings at this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Using Maxwell's research into the ceremonial eye-opening ritual as a point of entry, this program delves into the history and culture of the Khmer empire and the efforts of the Angkor Inscriptions Survey to preserve the fast-fading record of that civilization.
