A Walk Through the Preah Khan Temple Complex

Hidden deep in the jungles of Cambodia’s Angkor Archaeological Park, Preah Khan is a vast temple complex sprawling across nearly 140 acres. Built by the Khmer king Jayavarman the seventh in the late twelfth century as a monastery and center for learning, it was once the heart of a city of nearly 100,000. Working in close collaboration with the APSARA National Authority, and with support from generous donors, World Monuments Fund is committed to preserving and protecting this unparalleled treasure for generations to come.
