English: Funan was a pre-Angkor Indianized kingdom located around the Mekong delta, believed to have been established in the first century A.D. by a Mon-Khmer people. At its height, Funan and all its principalities covered much of mainland Southeast Asia from modern day south Vietnam, parts of Laos, Thailand, Burma and extending into the Malay peninsula. The capital was initially located at Vyadhapura, near the modern Cambodian town of Banam in the Prey Veng province, though it may have been moved to Oc Eo at a later time.
