Anthem History

"Nokoreach" is the national anthem of Cambodia. After the royalist forces defeated the communists in 1993, the royalist anthem was restored as well. Based on a Cambodian folk tune and written by Chuon Nat, the anthem was originally adopted in 1941 and reconfirmed in 1947. However, it was replaced when the Khmer Rouge took over in 1976

Anthem Lyrics English

Heaven protect our King


And give him happiness and glory


To reign over our souls and our destinies,


The one being, heir of the builder Sovereigns,


Guiding the proud old Kingdom.

Temples are asleep in the forest,


Remembering the splendour of Moha Nokor.


Like a rock the Khmer race is eternal.


Let us trust in the fate of Kampuchea,


The empire which challenges the ages.

Songs rise up from the pagodas


To the glory of the holy Buddhist faith.


Let us be faithful to our ancestors' belief.


Thus heaven will lavish its bounty


Towards the ancient Khmer country, the Moha Nokor.
