[IRASEC Conference Series: Buddhism & Society]

Organised by Anne Yvonne Guillou, Anthropologist at CNRS / IRASEC

The epigraphic body of Khmer writing contains numerous references to the Brahmanic religion, but very few regarding Buddhism during the Khmer empire. Among the multitude of temples still standing today in Cambodia, only the Preah Khan of Kompong Svay, located 100 km to the East of Angkor shows, through its architecture and its iconography, its affiliation to Buddhism.

This conference aims at making this temple better known, and through a study of its iconography, the presence of tantric Buddhism on its lands.
