Young and old, Koulen region of Cambodia 💙 Despite going through a mass genocide in very recent history, I find Cambodians to be an extremely happy and vibrant people. They are quick to smile and genuinely warm.
Banteay Srei is cut from pinkish sandstone and includes some of the finest stone carving anywhere. Begun in AD 967, it is one of the smallest sites at Angkor, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in stature. The art gallery of Angkor, Banteay Srei, a Hindu temple, is dedicated to Shiva. #angkor #banteaysrei #cambodia @smilecambodiatour
Apsara traditional dancers and the Monkey King then AND now.... (Swipe ↩) According to mythology, Apsaras were beautiful female creatures that descended from heaven to entertain Gods and Kings with their dance, considered "the perfect woman". Legend has it that they were born from the Churning of the Ocean of Milk and are messengers of peace. As willing servants of Indra, the ethereal nymphs seduced mortals with their beauty if those threatened the power of the King of Gods. The power of Apsaras over men was beyond comparison as both mortals and divinities could not resist the charms of the dancers. 🕉💜🙏🕉💜🙏🕉💜🙏 #perfectwoman #apsara #dancers #cambodia #monkeyking #apsaras #koulenrestaurant #koulen2 #churningoftheoceanofmilk #cambodia #siemreap
