White Statues

No matter where you are in the world, there is always someone who wants to build a monument.

Even if money is scarce, as it is in Kampong Cham, something largely useless is promoted by a largely useless, politician.

I’ve no idea what these statues represent and there wasn’t a sign, either in Khmer or English, to explain.

Built on the top of a small hill in the 6th century by King Rutravarman, Phnom Da temple is watched over by no one except two young girls. (at least while I was there).

So there is some graffiti on this site- the so-called cradle of Khmer civilisation. Thankfully, it is on the rocks that surround the temple, not the temple itself.

How much damage would western vandals do to an important but unguarded structure, isolated at the top of hill, though? And how quickly?
