Banteay Srei, Angkor Thom district halls moving

The Banteay Srei district hall, located near the Banteay Srei temple, will have to relocate to the Run Ta Ek area and away from the 10th-centuary temple, while the Angkor Thom district hall which is near Angkor Archeological Park, will also need to relocate to the Peak Sneng area, said Prime Minister Hun Sen on October 21.

“Banteay Srei district hall has to relocate to Run Ta Ek too. So, our people in Run Ta Ek will be in a favourable place because the district hall will move and everything will be there. So, allocate some hectares of land in this area for the district hall as per the request of the provincial governor and Banteay Srei district governor. It is not suitable that people move away while the authorities remain there,” he said while meeting with people who had volunteered to move from Angkor Archeological Park and the areas under the control of Apsara National Authority.

“For Angkor Thom district hall, it must also move to Peak Sneng too. The people living around the current area of district hall will also need to move,” he added.
