The UME’s Faculty of Arts, Humanity, and Foreign Language’s Special Historical and Cultural Sites Field Study from 18-19/06/2022

From June 18th-19th, the Faculty of Arts, Humanity, and Foreign Languages of the University of Management and Economics led a group of students on a special field study to prominent historical and cultural sites in Cambodia: in Preah Vihear and Siem Reap provinces. The purposes of the trip were:

(UME’s Students)

A. To learn more about the greatness and profoundness of Khmer civilization and culture.
B. To invigorate and strengthen the spirits of curiosity, industriousness, honesty, and solidarity of students.
C. To contribute to promoting domestic tourism.
The proofs and evidence strongly suggest that Khmer is one of the world’s oldest and greatest civilizations. We have much to learn from these magnificent civilizations.

  1. Historical sites in Anlong Veng
    Anglong Veng was once the strongest hold of the Khmer Rouge, where fighting was fierce and land mines were said to be numerous. However, since the end of the civil war and the compromising of all Khmer parties under the win-win policy of the government, the place has been transformed to be a tourist hub. The team leader provided excellent guidance to the students regarding those events and recent history.
  2. Preah Vihear Temple
    Preah Vihear is one of the most ancient and greatest temples built during the Khmer Empire, dedicated to Shiva. The temple is situated on the top of a mountain, 525 metres high. It is said to be worshipped and paid homage to by every consecutive king during that period. The students were also explained by leader aout the four major historical events there: a) the history of how and why the temple was built; b) the declination of the Khmer empire and the falling of the temple under Siam occupation, c) the historical victory of King Father Sihanouk over Siam at ICJ in 1962; and d) the greatest victory of Cambodian governement over Thai government and the enlistment of the temple in UNESCO in 2008.
  3. Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom
    The students were headed to learn more about historical and cultural sites in Siem Reap, where Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom were the main destinations. At these sites, the students were thrilled and fascinated by Khmer culture and history engraved on the walls of the temples. The team leader also explained to them the reasons for the rise and fall of the Khmer empire.

The young generation should go somewhere they have never been before or should always learn new things to develop themselves, society, and nation.
