Jakarta – Indonesia and Cambodia have historically shared cultural ties since the Syailendra Dynasty ruling in the days of the Mataram Kingdom in Java and the Jayawarman II Dynasty ruling the Angkor Kingdom in Cambodia.
Jayawarman II is known to have lived in Java and returned to Cambodia to unite it since it was divided into several small kingdoms.
Indonesia’s Borobudur temple, built in the early ninth century, is often considered to have cultural ties with Cambodia’s Angkor Wat temple built during the Jayawarman II Dynasty.
