From Beyond Angkor

City.jpg This category refers to sites considered - by the consensus of archaeological opinion - to have been either a city of importance or capital at some stage of Angkorian or pre-Angkorian history. Certain sites, such as Hariharalaya or Lingapura (Preah Vihear) are almost universally accepted while others including Purandarapura or Aninditapura are still debated. We have attempted to avoid over-speculation and have provided listings according to our own, admittedly amateur considerations, backed up by what we feel is the weight of logical archaeological opinion.

Note; as they are of considerable, and we feel relevant, interest we have also included post-Angkorian capitals such as Longvek and Oudong.
