A woman of Angkor sets in Angkor period but a bit earlier. It is started when the King Suryavarman 2 began to build the famous temple, Angkor Wat.
The story told from a typical Khmer family who earned a living by selling fruits in the market. One day the family was invited by the king to the palace because her husband is a master of the silk parasols.
The story was told through the eyes of a woman called Sray who will give you an idea on how the temple was built.
Nat Geo travel book specialist Don George recommends “A Woman of Angkor” as a book to read before going to Cambodia.
