The Cambodian government awarded honorary medals to three Chinese cultural heritage conservators in Siem Reap on Tuesday for their outstanding contributions to the protection of Angkor Wat.

The three conservators from the Chinese Academy of Cultural Heritage in Beijing - Xu Yan, Wang Yuanlin and Gu Jun - were leading experts in the China-led renovation of Ta Keo, a 46,000 square meter temple dating back to the 10th century in Angkor Wat, a UNESCO World Heritage site in Siem Reap.

The renovation began in 2010 and was completed earlier this year.
