On Monday, Cambodia held a ceremony to celebrate the conferment of Unesco World Heritage status on Kampong Thom's Sambor Prei Kuk. A collection of ancient brick temples, Sambor Prei Kuk was built by Isanavarnam I, king of the Chenla Empire, in the seventh-century. Best known for its enigmatic carvings of foreign visitors to the royal court, it was given the honour of being listed as one of Unesco's World Heritage sites during the 41st session of the World Heritage Committee held in Krakow, Poland.
