A Cambodian temple is hoping to gain UNESCO status. The ancient city of Koh Ker was built in the 10th century to serve as capital of the Khmer Empire.
Isolated from the outside world for centuries, the ancient Cambodian city of Koh Ker is slowly remerging from the jungle. However, many temples are in poor condition and attract few tourists. People hoping to protect the sites believe that their futures could be secured if they achieve UNESCO World Heritage status.
