As a UNESCO World Heritage site, Angkor Wat is considered to be one of the most significant archaeological sites in South-East Asia and dates as early as the 9th century. After time, neglect, and war damaged the site, UNESCO put the historical remains on its World Heritage List, as well as the World Heritage in Danger List to save it from further destruction and looting. Since then, there has been work to preserve the temples by both professional archaeologists and locals.
