We are pleased to let you know that the reconstruction of the east gallery of Banteay Chhmar Temple is nearing completion. This is the final major piece of conservation work that also included the rebuilding and stabilization of Tower #18 in 2013. Working under the guidance and authority of the Cambodian Ministry of Culture & Fine Arts (MCFA), the conservation work was managed by Global Heritage Fund (GHF), We will keep you posted as further conservation work and projects develop.

The east gallery bas-reliefs offer a new glimpse into Anglorian-era life. They further help to tell the story under the reign of the empire’s last great king, Jayavarman VII. Please take your time to examine and enjoy these wonderful stories of Cambodia’s heritage and culture.
