The Foundation of the Khmer Kingdom
The Khmer Kingdom was established after a series of destructive rebellions which burned many cities especially the areas wherein the Nobility from Srivijaya built their villas and palaces. The Khmer, as well as other groups of people, became dissatisfied with the government of the Srivijaya. Their nobility was oppressive and the taxation of the people was driving them to starvation. Leaders in the intellectual movement among the youth of the Southeast Asian Peninsula such as Yasovarman stirred up a coutnry which was had been feeling very disenfranchised for years. The Mon people, who were sent by the Maurya to turn these people violent in an attempt to destroy the Srivijaya Empire, come in afterwards and started many of the conflagrations in major cities. The Srivijaya failed to invade the peninsula and the Khmer declared themselves independent in 907 (154 AD).
