The Khmer empire
The dominant power in the region is now the Khmer empire, which is based in Cambodia but has conquered the historic kingdom of Champa and has expanded over a huge empire. This is the age in which the great series of Khmer temples were built, culminating in Angkor Wat, by all measures one of the most spectacular buildings ever constructed anywhere in the world.
