via Khmer Times, 26 June 2020 (and other sources): Discovery of a Sanskrit inscription in Tonle Snguot temple, just north of Angkor Thom. The style of writing appears earlier than the temple, and may have been a recycled stone block.
Experts from the Apsara Authority have found a sandstone relic with Sanskrit engravings at the Tonle Snguot temple located in Siem Reap city’s Kok Chak commune, while they were cleaning and repairing the temple.
Long Kosal, Apsara Authority spokesman, yesterday said the inscription stanza stone is 100cm in height, 40cmwide and 20cm thick, with 55 lines of Sanskrit inscribed on it.
He said, “The inscription stone has been taken by experts from the temple to be repaired at the Conservation of Monuments Department before sending it to Sanskrit experts to study, research and interpret the piece.”
