The restoration of the southwest corner of the third terrace of Bayon Temple has successfully been completed after it started early this year, underlined yesterday the APSARA National Authority.
According to Ms. Meng Sovanlylin, Architect of the Department of Conservation of the Temples in the Angkor Park and Preventive Archaeology, in the restoration process, the team focused on strengthening the wall of the terrace and the soil quality of the foundation.
In this work, the team also used some new stones to replace the old ones that were damaged, she added.
The restoration of the third terrace is part of the four on-going repairs of Bayon Temple’s sections.
The others include the repair of the temple’s pillars, the filling of holes in its stones, and the installation of its steel frame.
The temple’s renovation is made possible through a technical collaboration between the APSARA National Authority and Japan-APSARA Safeguarding Angkor (JASA).
