APAD 062 Khmer shrine at the riverside

It is actually more of a shrine, located in Sisowath Quay, facing the Chroy Changvar Peninsula. On vesak days (Buddhist holy days), people flock to this shrine to light incense and to pray; some leave offerings such as lotus flowers and bananas. The pavillion behind it serves as the main stage during important celebrations, such as the Khmer Water Festival. It is where the King of Cambodia, other royalties, and high-ranking government officials sit to watch the boat-racing competition. More photos at That’s My World
