Haunting History

Life in Cambodia is not easy. History, as recent as 30+ years old still haunts the common man. Thousands of human skulls that were found by some farmers, now rest in peace in one of the temples.
I will write about it in detail later.

Location: Wat Thmei, Siem Reap.

  1. oh my… this is so horrible… thinking of these skulls as real humans and then thinking about how they might have died… 🙁

  2. This looks like a memorial to all those innocent Cambodians who lost their lives for no reason. It is believed that Khmer Rouge, Pol Pot’s Party, was active even in the nineties.
