Hinduism - India

ery early the Khmer people adopted Hinduism to the social way of the Indian life. Their king found his origin in the union of the god SHIVA and a local goddess, like DEVARAJA (god-king), he created a cult.

This is the reason that explains that cult to the hindu gods persisted in spite of a large development in the popular classes of the HINAYANA Buddhism and the beginnings of the MAHAYANA schools, especially supported by the king JAYAVARMAN 7. His intention was to limit the power and the wealth of the Brahmans.

Hinduism was to be preserved by a lot temples dedicated to Shiva but the famous "mountain temple"  Angkor Vat received first VISHNU statues and cult.
