Silent Dance

Khmer classical dance – an ancient art form, now performed mainly for tourists in Cambodia.

Thunder and Lightning Apsara

This classical Cambodian dance (Robam moni mekhala-ream eyso) retells the story of Moni Mekhala and Ream Eyso. “The legend of Moni Mekhala and Ream Eyso is an origin myth explaining the cause of thunder and lightning which Khmer people believed comes from Ream Eyso’s axe flying toward the goddess, thundering and shaking the sky as it lands while Moni Mekhala’s crystal ball lights up the heavens as she tosses it in the air to blind the ogre. Together they bring rain, the symbol of renewed life as it imparts fertility to Cambodias farmlands.” -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zfz8Kgay98Q

Angkor Wat Orange Sunrise

Angkor Wat was built by Khmer king Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city.  The temple was first known as Preah Pisnulok, named after the posthumous title of its builder, and then later (in the 16th century) re-named Angkor Wat, meaning “City Temple.”  It was built as a Hindu temple, dedicated to the god Vishnu, and later, as the religion of the Khmer Empire changed, used in Buddhist worship.  The temple is still an active religious site – worship still goes on each and every day.
