Khmer Architecture Thailand
Khmer Temple Architecture, Lop Buri Thailand
- Khmer existence was totally dictated by Hindu beliefs, astrology and subjugation to the Gods and their God Kings. The role of architecture was to demonstrate these beliefs for the believers and enforce by demonstration the system to those subjugated to the system.
- Architecture was based on a system where boundaries, axes, and other architectural parameters have measurement or size based on their physical extent and internal divisions (that is subdivided parts into logical parts with each measurable against the whole) but where additionally these structures contained calendar and cosmological concepts.
