On May 24, 2016, Ambassador and Mrs. Heidt visits Koh Ker, a remote temple location, about 2.5 hours from Siem Reap.
More than 50 temples are currently open to visitors at the site, including the pyramid-shaped Prasat Thom and Prasat Chen.
Earlier this year, The Torso of Rama from Prasat Chen, Koh Ker, was returned by the Denver Art Museum after experts confirmed that the object had in fact been looted from its original home. A ceremony was held on March 28, 2016, at the Council of Ministers to celebrate the homecoming of a 10th century statue.
