Preah Ang Chek Preah Ang Chorm Shrine at Night Photo Gallery

This photo gallery contains pictures of Preah Ang Chek Preah Ang Chorm Shrine in the Royal Independence Gardens in Siem Reap taken at night. This was also the first night of Pchum Ben Festival so the shrine was being continuously flooded with Cambodians bringing offerings for the Buddha and food for the dead. Few stalls selling decorated flower bouquets, decorated coconuts, burning incense sticks and live birds were nearby so devotees can purchase those for use within the temple. There was a band with traditional Khmer instruments set on the shrine floor playing traditional Khmer music. Few monks were seated on the side to give people blessings and take offerings of food and clothes from devoted Buddhists. Inside a small room, there were two statues of Buddha and people were hanging flower rings on them, touching their hands or just leaving other offerings at their feet. Hundreds upon hundreds of incense sticks were being lit up and burned in a large ashtray. The smoke from these could be smelled and seen half a mile away. Devotees also prey before the Buddha images with their palms joined together for a prayer while burning incense sticks are held between the palms. Preah Ang Chek Preah Ang Chorm Shrine is a small, but nicely located and beautifully built shrine that enjoys vast popularity among people of Siem Reap. The gallery is below:

  1. Preah Ang Chek Preah Ang Chorm were famous by their sacredness of blessing to the prayers. Most Cambodians believe in them and pray to them for health, happiness, and even the success in works.
    Your photos are very beautiful. Thank for sharing.

  2. Preah Ang Chek Preah Ang Chorm are two famous Angorian Princess that are much beloved by our people. We pay and respect them for their sacrifice for our country though they are not buddha as to Lord Buddha. This custom is what we call Nek Ta….ancestral worship.

    Thanks for staying in Cambodia and please do take a ride from the Tuk Tuk. They are just making a living to support their families. And most are honest hard working people.
