"Angkorian Artifacts" Architecture Tip by Sharrie

Architecture, Phnom Penh: 9 reviews and 16 photos

 
 

What I was surprised to see here at the museum are the many sculptured figurines & heads of Buddhas.

We hardly see many at Angkor Wat.
I supposed they are here so that it won't be stolen by the thieves.
Pilferage is a big problem in this part of the world & there is just not enough resources to guard them at the actual temples.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
