Gallery F: Story from Stone

"The Evidence of the Past"

The stone inscriptions found throughout Angkor record important historical events and serve as a proof that such a grand world once existed. Such inscriptions provide us with a window back in time to the lives, beliefs, and various legends of the ancient Khmer empire.

Just as important, the stone inscriptions provide evidence of the ancient language of the region and offer opportunities for linguists to preserve the wonderful language. Inscriptions at the museum have been translated into current Cambodian and delivered to audiences by the application of sound dome technology.
