The Apsara National Authority (ANA) is planting grass lawns in front of the south corner of Angkor Wat in a bid to upgrade the environment.

The landscaping team is planting grass, trees and wildflowers in an area of 24,000sq m, with about 30% of the work completed so far since the project started at the beginning of July.

They plan to finish the project within four months, according to Ang Sochenda, an official at the Department of Water, Forestry and Infrastructure Management of the Apsara Authority .

She said the grass lawn would attract more people to take photos there, adding that the location will also be suitable for holding various celebrations.

ANA said the grass fields around Angkor Wat are constantly maintained by the agency through regular watering and mowing to keep the Angkor site green and easier to traverse in both dry and rainy seasons. — Phnom Penh Post/ANN
