Dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu, the 12th-century temple at Angkor Wat in Cambodia was the seat of power of Khmer kings and testifies to the early reach into Southeast Asia of Indian beliefs and architecture. Damaged by wars and looters, the temple, along with others nearby, is being restored by international conservationists, including the Archaeological Survey of India, which has been at work at Angkor Wat since 1986.
