From the 10th century until the fall and abandonment of Angkor, after the Thai people moved in from the north to carve out a Thai kingdom, whose legacy is modern Thailand, the Khmers of Cambodia were the dominant and political and cultural force in the region. In much of central and north-eastern Thailand the influence of Khmer culture especially in art and architecture was formidable which often makes it difficult to distinguish what was created where.
