The beautiful and magic Nagas of Cambodia ...
Jan 2020
"Nagas" are divine or semi-divine deities of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. They are half-human half-serpent beings that live in the nether worlds and can, eventually, take a human form. While visiting Cambodia, and specially the "Angkor Archaeological Park", you will certainly see many five, seven or nine-headed "Nagas", depicted as guardian statues, carved on balaustrades and causeways at many temples and monuments. At "Phimeanakas" temple, for instance, an old Khmer legend tells that at its top, known as the "Golden Tower", lived a nine-headed "Naga". Every night, it would appear in the form of a beautiful woman and the King should sleep with her, before seeing his wives and concubines. If he failed to do so, a great disaster would occur. But if the "Naga/Woman" did not show up, the King would die soon. Amazing legends of the Khmer culture. You'll see "Nagas" everywhere in the Angkor complex. Take as many pictures as you can and may the "Nagas" protect your journey in the beautiful Kingdom of Cambodia! Enjoy!

Mythical seven-headed snake figure you'll see plenty of times
Jan 2020
Naga is an mythical figure in Cambodia which takes the form of a seven-headed snake, often carved as a balustrade and found on causeways leading to temples or palace buildings.

You will find nice Naga figures in Siem Reap as well as ancient Naga ruins amongst the temples in the Angkor Archeological Park. Many have been reconstructed and are available to be photographed while you explore the temple ruins.

A great place to stay
Jan 2016
This hotel is walking distance to the river, shopping, Night market, and generally everything worth seeing and doing in the City Center. It is also close to Pub street but is very quiet. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I took a cooking class arranged through the hotel and it was amazing. Great place
