MONTREAL – An 11th century temple that sits on Cambodia‘s disputed border zone with Thailand was designated as a world heritage site, a UNESCO official said Monday.

UNESCO spokeswoman Joanna Sullivan said that Preah Vihear was designated a heritage site at a meeting in Quebec City.

In 1962, the International Court of Justice in the Hague ruled Preah Vihear, with its crumbling stone facade, was located a few hundred feet inside Cambodia‘s border.

Tensions along the border boiled over last month when protesters threatened to evict Cambodians living in the disputed territory. Cambodia responded by closing access to the temple.

The stone temple is revered partly for having one of the most stunning locations of all the temples constructed during the Khmer empire — the most famous of which is Angkor Wat.
