via Khmer Times, 11 February 2021: The Apsara Authority reports the successful restoration of Angkorian towers at Kork Chak temple in Siem Reap.
Apsara Authority yesterday announced it had completed the reparation project on two damaged towers at Kork Chak temple.
Apsara spokesman Long Kosal said the two towers of Kork Chak, which had sustained high levels of damage due to many plants growing on them and the roots penetrating the walls causing them to crack, have now been repaired by a team of Apsara Authority experts to prevent a series of collapses.
Kosal said the damage to the towers was caused by plants, the age of the buildings, people and the climate.
He said that in 2015, with financial support from the government, the team began renovating the south tower at the front and south wall of the temple.
