Cambodian temple gets a makeover

Computer modelling helps conservationists map and repair thousands of stones belonging to Banteay Chhmar.

    After years of neglect and looting, one of Cambodia's treasured temples is getting a much-needed renovation.

    Computer modelling is helping conservationists map and log thousands of stones belonging to the Banteay Chhmar temple before repairing, and where possible, re-erecting them in their original position.
