It has taken half a century, but archaeologists in Cambodia have finally completed the renovation of the ancient Angkor temple described as the world’s largest three dimensional puzzle. French architect Pascal Royere from the Ecole francaise d’Extreme-Orient (EFEO) (Pictured in the last image) is the chief architect of the restoration project.
The Baphuon temple is in Siem Reap province, some 300 kilometers northwest of Phnom Penh. Both local and foreign tourists walk about and explore the ancient building. – Photos by AFP
