via Phnom Penh Post, 12 May 2020: Status update on restoration work on the Kraham temple in Phnom Kulen.
The director of the Apsara National Authority’s (ANA) department of conservation outside Angkor Archaeological Park Chhean Rotha said on Tuesday that his team has completed 80 per cent of the planned restoration of Kraham Temple.
Experts claim the temple was built in the 9th century during the reign of Jayavarman II.
He said the team has excavated areas in search of sculptures and art pieces as well as cleared plants and trees from the walls and roof of the temple.
They’ve also repaired parts of the walls and roof, but Rotha said he will need to request a second round of renovations to fully complete the work.
