Burgess Documents Cambodian-Thai Conflict at Preah Vihear in Newest Book

Preah Vihear temple has been at the center of a border dispute between Cambodia and Thailand for more than a century. Built from sandstone a thousand years ago, it was the center of faith and worship during the height of the Khmer Empire. The temple is situated in the Dangrek Mountains, atop a 500-foot cliff. VOA Khmer’s Emma Cramer sits down with author and former Washington Post correspondent, John Burgess, to talk about his new book entitled “Temple in the Clouds: Faith and Conflict at Preah Vihear” – and has this interview.
