A rainstorm that hit Banteay Meanchey on Tuesday caused a wall at the ancient Banteay Chhmar temple complex to collapse.

Officials said yesterday that the damage to the Angkor-era temple in Thma Puok district near the Thai border was not considered serious, and no one was injured.

“We are sorry that the rainstorm damaged this ancient temple,” said Yan Tangkouy, acting director of the provincial department of Culture and Fine Arts, adding that he did not yet have a time frame for repairs.
