More than 80 original cultural relics from Cambodia are on display at the Guangdong Museum in Guangzhou until June 21. The majority of the artifacts are from the Angkor period, the heyday of ancient Khmer culture. The treasures from the National Museum of Cambodia mostly highlight large sandstone statues - typical symbols of classical Buddhist Art of Southeast Asia. There are also ancestral temple architectures, representing the complex religious systems and history of Cambodia. Apart from the exhibition, a series of seminars and workshops will be held to enable people to learn more about Cambodia.
