Only a few settlements extended beyond 10 hectares, the largest, DHOLAVIRA, probably covering three times that area. The principal exposures of archaeological material are from the eponymous sites. Excavations at AMRI, particularly the second phase of research under Jean-Marie Casal in 1959–62, revealed a sequence of superposed building phases in stone and mud brick.

The victorious king, SURYAVARMAN I, established his court at Angkor, with the focal point of his capital the temple known as the PHIMEANAKAS. It comprises a single shrine, surrounded by narrow roofed galleries on top of three tiers of laterite of descending size. The royal palace would have been built of perishable materials and can be traced only through the excavation of its foundations. These buildings were located within a high laterite wall with five gopuras ascribed to this reign, enclosing a precinct 600 by 250 meters in extent.

Devoted to Vishnu, the temple still houses a large stone statue to this god, which was probably originally housed in the central lotus tower.

One scene, for example, shows the king in council; another reveals the Angkorian army on the march, while a third shows graphic scenes of heaven and hell. Very high-status princesses are seen being borne on palanquins.
