TouchStone Magazine

The latest edition of TouchStone (April-June), the glossy quarterly magazine produced by the NGO HeritageWatch landed on my doormat today. Its designed to keep a high profile public focus on the richness of Cambodia's heritage, culture and arts and the necessity to preserve it. Its eighty pages are again brimming with informative articles on a variety of topics from interviews with award-winning filmmaker Rithy Panh and ace photographer John McDermott, feature stories on the temples of Banteay Chhmar (by yours truly) and Krol Romeas, a focus on organisations making a difference such as PEPY and Youth Star Cambodia, as well as arts and crafts, forthcoming events and businesses giving back. And it's free, just pick up a copy in key retail outlets, restaurants, cafes, bars and guesthouses. All proceeds from advertising is used to fund their Heritage Friendly Tourism Campaign to raise awareness about Cambodian heritage and the trade of illegal antiquities. Find out more about HeritageWatch at their website. Below: Page 1 of 4 pages of my article on the remote temple of Banteay Chhmar.

I do really appreciate your information on Banteychmar. It is so inspiring for all the Khmer to take a glance on their forgoten treasure that has been lost to the jungle.

I do enjoy your site alot.
