Prasat Preah Vihea is a sacred shrine which is located on the high and smooth plateau along the Dang Rek Mountain about 625 meters in Preah Vihear province around this temple is cool, smoggy, temperate, and perfect landscapes. This temple decorated with many styles. Recently, we had introduced Preah Vihear into the World Heritage which prepared by UNESCO on 7th July, 2008. It gives us some important benefits.
First, we can preserve our territorial integrity and cultures. We can germinate conscience to all Khmers in all generations to love and glorify our cultures. We also
change this area to become the world tourists target both local and the international, so we can reduce poverty by providing many kinds of services to Khmer people. Other important benefit is that we’ll get fund from UNESCO for preserve and maintain this world heritage.
Second, it’ll be acknowledged internationalize and it has its own values for the world. They’ll spread to the world what they have seen in Cambodia tourists in our
country will be increasing and they’ll spread and ask for help from other country especially developed country
In conclusion, we can get many benefits both inside and outside our country, so we should try all our best to preserve and conserve our temples not only Preah Vihear but also all Khmer ancient temples because those are the priceless heritage from our ancestors.
