Postcards from Preah Vihear – By C.C.

By C.C.

A personal note about Prasat Preah Vihear. After seeing it up close for the first time and surveying the surrounding landscape, I feel that the Thai’s claim to the land adjacent to the temple is ridiculous at best and aggressive at worst. There is clearly a gorge (small river) which separates the mountain on which Prasat Preah Vihear sat and the opposite mountain on which the Thai had already claimed as theirs. If we talk about watershed demarcation, the water that flows from both Preah Vihear Mountain and the other mountain on Thai side is eventually flowing down to Cambodia which should make the river in from of Preah Vihear Temple belonging to Cambodia, too. Also the new road which Cambodia built to reach Prasat Peah Vihear, it has been cut about 1 kilometer short of its destination because of the Thai’s objection (in one of the pictures, it shows where the new road ended). I hope the UN court would rule in our favor so that we could complete that road and everyone could drive up to see Preah Vihear Temple without hindrance.
