Event Description : 
International Conference on Angkor Wat: The Monument and the Living Presence

The proposed conference will a landmark academic event, attempting for the first time a holistic interpretation of the world famous monument both in time and space, tracing the journey of Khmer civilization, locating ourselves at the majestic west gate of the monument, and recapitulating longstanding India-Cambodia friendship. Prospective paper presenters are requested to write their paper, keeping Angkor Wat as centre piece and looking at the evolution of Angkor civilization in retrospect and prospect.

Angkor Wat, a largest religious complex built by Suryavarman II, is situated 5.5
Kilometres north of the city of Siem Reap in Cambodia. In Khmer, Angkor Wat, means
"Temple City" or "City of Temples". It is a vernacular form of the word nokor, which comes
from the Sanskrit word Nagara. Wat is the Khmer word for "temple, grounds", also derived
from Sanskrit vāṭa meaning "enclosure". The original name of the temple was Vrah
Viṣṇuloka (in Sanskrit) or Brah Bisnulōk (in Khmer) which means the sacred dwelling of
Vishnu, the presiding deity. The initial design and construction of the temple took place in
the first half of the 12th century A.D. The temple represents a classical style of Khmer
architecture. Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the
temple-mountain and the later galleried temple. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology
