The Preah Vihear Temple along the Thai and Cambodian border has been a source of contention between the two countries for the past hundred years. Preah Vihears origins go back to the ninth century, but the contemporary dispute is over a portion of land surrounding the temple measuring 4.6 square kilometers. Cambodia and Thailand share many similarities including customs, traditions, art, and religion.
