In this photo taken Dec. 12, 2011, with the help of a crane, workers gently remove a section of a bas-relief at the 800-year-old Buddhist temple of Banteay Chhmar in northwestern Cambodia. The relief, one of only a few at temples from the Angkor era, depicts a battle in vivid detail. It's still entwined in mystery and jungle vines, but one of Cambodia's grandest monuments is slowly awakening after eight centuries of isolated slumber, having attracted a crack archaeological team and a trickle of tourists.
