Phnom Bakheng Restoration Project

Angkor Archaeological Park in northwestern Cambodia is home to the magnificent centuries-old temples of the mighty Khmer empire. One of the most-visited and oldest of these is the temple of Phnom Bakheng, perched atop a solitary hill at the heart of Angkor. Built as a state temple between the late ninth and early tenth centuries by King Yasovarman, Phnom Bakheng represents Mount Meru, home of the Hindu gods.
