I've visited Angkor Wat and nearby historical sites and they were all magnificent! But they need conservation works.

I was there once, after grad school, and it is exquisite, particularly in the context of the time and culture in whihc it was constructed. Unfortunately, it needs significant conservation to preserve it. Even when I was there, some of the carvings were being damaged as people took rubbings of them.

Thank you! There is a theory on alignments of sites such as these globally to align with heavenly constellations 10,000 years ago....

Yvette, I thought that it went back to during the last ice age 15,000 years ago?

Cambodia needs to get help to preserve these sites. I would hope that the UN in conjunction with world leaders can do more to keep these sites from being damaged by visitors/locals in future.
