Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar on Sunday arrived in the resort town of Siem Reap in northwestern Cambodia where he will review the preservation and restoration work being undertaken by India at Cambodian heritage sites.

Dhankhar, accompanied by External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, is scheduled to visit Ta Prohm Temple and Angkor Wat Temple.

Angkor Wat temple, built in the 12th century by King Suryavarman II , is the world's largest religious structure and it marks the high point of Khmer architecture.

Ta Prohm is one of the most visited complexes in Cambodia's Angkor region.

Siem Reap, the city of temples, was the capital during the Khmer Kingdom.

Dhankhar is here on the last leg of his three-day visit to Cambodia.

Earlier in the day, Dhankhar addressed the East Asia Summit (EAS) in Cambodia's capital city Phnom Penh. On Saturday, he participated in ASEAN-India Summit.

Addressing the 17th East Asia Summit (EAS) here, the Vice President highlighted the importance of the EAS mechanism in promoting free, open and inclusive Indo-Pacific with freedom of navigation and overflight.

On Saturday, he addressed the ASEAN-India summit.
