PM Urges Cambodians to Teach Children on Giving Value to Khmer Heritage

PHNOM PENH: Prime Minister Hun Sen has urged the Cambodian people to teach their children on how to love and take care the valuable heritage of the kingdom. He released a message on Tuesday morning as Cambodia celebrates the 29th anniversary of its iconic Angkor Wat in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The Prime Minister says, “Angkor residence is a great architectural building built to dedicate to the Lord Vishnu in religious traditions. The temple, the design, the character, and the pure sculpture are the evidence that proved about life, the way of living, the tradition, the religion, the culture, the business, and the economy of the Angkor era. Angkor represents the whole Khmer art from the ninth to the 14th century, as a national identity of culture and national pride.”

The famous Anglor Wat Temple located in Siem Reap was added to the world heritage list of UNESCO on 14 December 1992. It was built in the early 12th century by King Suryavarman II. The temple is 65 metres high and occupies a rectangular area of about 200 hectares, surrounded by water. The interior of the temple is decorated with fine wall paintings telling stories about Cambodia’s past kings. UNESCO has set up a wide-ranging programme to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.
