Kbal Spean river carved with thousand Shiva Lingas, The 1,000 lingas, but not other sculptures, are attributed to a minister of Suryavarman I during the 11th century, and these were carved by hermits who lived in the area. Inscriptions at the site testify to the fact that most of the sculpting was done during the reign of Udayadityavarman II. It is also mentioned that King Udayadityavarman II consecrated a golden ling here in 1059 AD. It is believed that the Siem Reap River flowing into Angkor is blessed by the sacred lingas over which it flows

My first week of being 26 has just passed & it has been an interesting week to say the least. This is the most significant piece of paper in my life right now. My mom gave me this envelope with some $ in it as a birthday gift, which I am so grateful for. Another thing I am grateful for is every birthday she or my pops writes their birthday wishes for me in the cambodian language & makes sure I read it out loud. I think it’s in an effort to make sure I haven’t forgotten their native language regardless how long ago I was taught to read it. It says:
"Dad & mom wish for our child to only encounter good luck."
I always complain to her that I have the worst luck.. & she always agrees. So this birthday she wrote this message to me as a joke, but also secretly in hopes that it will come true lol. My mom has the weirdest sense of humor lol
It’s here! It’s finally here! my stretched canvas Khmer Dancer Rose Wilson, courtesy of kortothecore. Look how wonderful it is on my door (will move to somewhere on my wall when I make room).

Angkor Wat is the primary reason over 50% of people visit Cambodia. It was the reason we did!…
