Banteay Chhmar Temple and its nine satellite temples form one the great temple complexes from the Angkorian era [1]. The temple was constructed by King Jayavarman VII [2] in the late 12th century. The temple complex is one of the largest from the Angkorian era and is one of only two sites outside of Bayon Temple [3] bearing the enigmatic Bayon-style face towers. Banteay Chhmar Temple is currently undergoing a multi-year conservation project by Global Heritage Fund [4] (GHF) and the Cambodian government is in efforts to have Banteay Chhmar listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site [5].
