Abstract

An independent laterite stone masonry tower at Prasat Suor Prat was found severely deteriorated with large inclination and selected as one of the conservation works by Japanese Government team for Safeguarding Angkor. The tower was dismantled not only for upper structure but also for foundation to study the character defining element of the masonry tower structure and mechanism of deformations and inclination. The authors describe the process of restoration work and application of new technologies including geo-textile used in compacted foundation soils with slaked lime under consideration of the principal of minimal intervention and yet to add basic safely requirement.
