In 1924, Khmerophile author and explorer George Groslier took the first automobile trip to Cambodia’s remote Khmer temple Banteay Chhmar.
Like Angkor Wat, the remote Banteay Chhmar temple, is the focus of multiple preservation efforts by UNESCO, Global Heritage Fund, Heritage Watch International and other groups in northwestern Cambodia.
The group Heritage Watch protects Cambodian antiquities by educating visitors, and working with government agencies at key heritage sites.
