The second phase of the restoration work of Angkor Wat’s embankment on the southwest will be completed this week, said a recent news release of the APSARA National Authority.

Archaeologist Mr. Sorn Chanthon shared that since its commencement in March, the restoration work has been completed about 90 percent now.

Some parts of the embankment were dilapidated due to age and its foundation needs reinforcement to prevent further landslides, he added.

After the completion of this work, there are also restoration plans for other parts of the embankment, however, a detailed decision yet to be made.
