Abstract: The early twentieth century Myanmar inscriptions found at Angkor were probably carved by gem-cutters living in the Pailin or Battambang region. The inscriptions are brief, giving the names of the pilgrims, the lunar month and the year according to the Myanmar Era. They testify to continued history of Angkor after the shifting of the capital in the fourteenth century CE and the prominence of Angkor as a pilgrimage discrimination among Buddhist throughout the region in the early twentieth century.
