Abstract: The friezes at Angkor Wat contain many images of musical instruments, some of which have been much reproduced. These have not been studied systematically. A field trip in 2006 documented all the representations both on Angkor Wat and the Bayon and the paper describes the instruments that may be of Indian origin, demonstrating parallels with both iconographic, textual sources and modern examples.
