Sacred Buddhas

Phnom Santuk is considered a holy site of pilgrimage for Cambodian Buddhists. There are several images of Buddha carved directly into the mountain stone. This one shows Buddha in a meditative pose.

Here's a walking Buddha - though he is on a much smaller scale. You can see the most important reclining Buddha here (I didn't get a photo of my own).

And just for fun, here are some monkeys looking for food on one of the offering stands. Photos taken in December 2016.


  1. RE the last shot ... someone has to enjoy the goodies

  2. ...the monkeys are cute!

  3. Those monkeys can be quite opportunistic!


Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from you.
