Model of Khmer Chariot
This model is displayed here to illustrate a typical Khmer chariot used in battles.
Chola – Khmer Alliance:
Some historians have interpreted that the gift of the Khmer chariot from Suryavarman I to Rajendrachola is the Khmer response to a threat and military pressure from Srivijaya. The date of the gift would correspond to the strongest period of Srivijaya’s control over the Straits trade route.
Maritime trade and cultural developments, from the 6th century, in Bharatam (India) and Java/Khmers/Funan are closely intertwined. The Pancaratra tradition of Bharatam finds its expression in the magnificent temple for Vishnu in Angkor Wat, Cambodia.
