Pupil and teacher. Pissa was once a student of DY Proeung a master artist and sculpture.
Read his amazing story.

Next door was a local school where besides lessons they make out of cow / buffalo skin punch out carvings.

I supported the children's work and hopefully my US$10 will aid that young girl's education.





























































































































































































































































































































































































































Preah Ko was the first temple to be built in the ancient and now defunct city of Hariharalaya (in the area that today is called Roluos. The temple was built under the Khmer King Indravarman I in 879 to honor members of the king's family, whom it places in relation with the Hindu deity Shiva. Mr Wikipedia.

Interesting that I didn’t take many pictures here as there was probably not much to take.

So that was the last temple here in Siem Reap … time to move on.
