Cambodia this afternoon won another world record for the Largest Display of Origami Hearts.

A total of 3,917,805 origami hearts have been being displayed in the compound of Angkor Wat Temple in Siem Reap province for the Angkor Sankranta 2023 to be held from April 14 to 16.

The last record was made by the United Kingdom in 2019 with only 53,704 origami hearts.

H.E. Hun Many, President of the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia (UYFC), expressed his delight and pride over the record-breaking of Cambodian display of origami hearts.

Cambodia also planned to break another world record for the largest Madison dance during the Angkor Sankranta 2023.

In the Angkor Sankranta 2015, Cambodia earned the Guinness World Records for the largest Madison dance with 2,015 participants, and for the giant Nom Ansorm, Cambodian sticky rice cake, weighing 4.04 tonnes.

In July 2018, Cambodia’s 1,149-metre-long Krama (scarf) won the Guinness World Record as the longest Krama, and in November of the same year, Cambodia’s longest dragon boat of 87.3 metres long and 1.94 metres wide, named “Kambojikaputtakhemaratari,” literally meaning the boat of Khmers in Cambodian territory, was listed as a Guinness World Record.
