Cambodia Temple Ruins Yield Treasure

Issued: 27 Aug 2002

Workers clearing dense jungle near the ruins of an ancient pagoda in northern Cambodia have unearthed 31 Buddha statues - 27 of them solid gold. The statues - which are 10 centimeters (4 inches) tall - are in good condition and believed to be hundreds of years old. They were found on Saturday as workers were rebuilding the Po Pich temple about 100 km (65miles) north of the capital, Phnom Penh. Provincial authorities initially planned to take the statues to a nearby town for safekeeping, but opted to allow the Buddhist community at the temple to take care of them.
