Cambodia, What Wat?

What Wat? Masjid Alihsan

An occasional look at Wats and other places of worship within the region.DSC_0133

The most unlovely Masjid Alihsan sits on a dusty rural street in Cambodia’s Tbong Khmum province.

It’s a poor area with thatched homes and roaming cows and raggedly-dressed children. It is one of a few places in Cambodia where there are many more Muslim residents than there are  Buddhist.

There is not a large population here, but there are three mosques on this road, all within a few hundred yards of each other. A Buddhist temple sits at the end of the street
