This is a photograph of a photograph of restoration work to the ruins that was on display in the Visitor's Center. Angkor Wat was "discovered" by French naturalist Henri Mouhot in the 1860s, and has been filled with Frenchmen engaged in restoration work ever since, except for a twenty-year break during the Khmer Rouge regime. They take a bit of liberty in the process, installing rebar (as here) and straigtening out leaning structures or flat-out rebuilding ones that have collapsed.
