Freeindia > Biographies > Great Kings And Queens > Kambu

The country that is known as Cambodia today was known earlier as Kambuja on the name of the great man Kambu. Kambu had initially been an Indian king who led a campaign, an expedition of victory of direction ( digvijaya ) in the East and entered an area having jungles that was being ruled by a Naga-worshipper ( Snake-worshipper ) king. Defeating him he married his daughter and developed that area. The beginning of the Kambuja empire can be traced to emperor Shrutavarma of Kaliyuga's 32nd century ( i.e. the 1st century A.D. ). Shrutavarma and his descendant kings carried aloft the flag of Sanatan ( Hindu ) Dharma and culture in the Kambuja empire. Later, from Kaliyuga's 38th to 46th ( i.e. 7th to 15th A.D. ) centuries the kings of Shailendra dynasty ruled over Kambuja.
