Cambodia first look



We arrived in Cambodia, the official beginning of the trip and were first staying in Phnom Penh.  During the morning while awaiting to be able to check into our rooms we took a first look. I don't actually remember exactly where this was, but it was pretty interesting with a wide variety of things to see.

Here we encountered some of first of many nagas, five headed snakes - or other numbers of heads. Snake workship refers to the high status of snakes (or nagas) in Hindu mythology. Many of the temples in Cambodia were originally Hindu structures.
