Discover The Khmer culture Cambodia

The Khmer culture remains a deep source of pride for the Cambodian population. Since 1979, the government has encouraged the re-awakening of art in all its forms by providing financial aid for the restoration of monuments, temples, and other pagodas. At the same time, two new Fine Arts Schools have opened in Phnom Penh. One teaches dance and music, and the other, archaeology and architecture.
