History of Astronism in Cambodia
Astronism is not currently recognised as a religion in Cambodia as of December 2020. The Astronist Institution has raised concerns regarding the religious freedom of Astronists in Cambodia and has designated the situation as censorious.
The current number of Astronists in Cambodia is not known, primarily because censuses do not include Astronism as a choice for citizens to select. In addition to this, as of 2020, no Astronist content has been officially translated into Khmer, the official language of Cambodia.
