Northern Library of Angkor Wat
Restoration activities at the Northern Library of Angkor Wat started in April 2002, using a dismantling and reassembly technique following a preliminary survey. These operations were completed in 2005. In these activities, the JSA has benefited from important experience gained during restoration work at the Northern Library of Bayon, and it is now facing the challenge of trying to again restore the Northern Library of Angkor Wat, which had already been restored in the past.
