Cambodia To Have Equinox This Week

AKP Phnom Penh, March 18, 2019 —

Equinox, the sun rising over the central tower of the Angkor Wat Temple in Siem Reap province, is forecasted to take place this year on Mar. 21, according to the APSARA Authority in charge of the protection and management of Angkor and the Region of Siem Reap.

The specific moment when the sun sits above the middle tower of Angkor Wat will be from 5:00 am to 7:00 am, it added.

To promote the event, the Ministry of Tourism generally organises the Angkor Selfie Photo Contest and three best selfies are awarded with an official appreciation letter by the ministry and a certain amount of money.

This supernatural phenomenon happens twice a year, the first time in March and the second in September, attracting thousands of national and international tourists.
