This photo was taken mid 2005 on a dirt bike trip up to the old capital of Cambodia, Udong (about 20 miles north of the current capital, Phnom Penh). There are many ruins there, as well as some restored temples. We walked around for a bit and I took this picture. The city was founded in 1626 by King Srey Soryopor, but then the capital was moved under the reign of King Norodom in 1866. The restored area hold the remains of several Cambodian kings, including King Srey Soryopor.
