Conservation and Restoration of Khmer Stone Cultural Heritage

Technology for the conservation of stone cultural heritage, developed by NRICH, was used between 2016 and 2020 on Khmer stone cultural heritages in Cambodia (e.g. Nokor Bachey Temple, Banteay Chhmar) in need of preservation. This was the first time the conservation technology was used internationally.

This book covers the process of application and diagnosis using Korea’s conservation technology, as well as the outcomes of repair and restoration conducted by the Cambodian Angkor Conservation Center, the joint research partner. This is an important step in furthering efforts for effective conservation and management of Cambodia’s stone cultural heritage.
