Action to preserve city’s colonial heritage

Phnom Penh Municipal authorities have ordered the owners of colonial-era apartment buildings surrounding the city’s iconic Central Market to ensure future renovations are made in line with the structures’ original design. In a statement published on the municipality’s website on Friday, City Hall said the buildings would now be considered historical structures and important parts of the capital’s heritage. Ty Dory, director of urban affairs at the municipality, said “every repair and improvement of these old buildings must be based upon their original design”.
