Three Khmer women with a horse pose for a photo in front of Angkor Wat.

Three young Khmer women pose in front of Angkor Wat (City Temple) with a horse they hire out to tourists looking for a novel way to have their photo taken with Cambodia's most famous attraction. Located near the modern-day town of Siem Reap, Angkor Wat is the largest of over one thousand temples scattered throughout the surrounding farmland and forest north of Tonlé Sap (Great Lake). It was built between 1113 and 1150 by King Suryavarman II as his state temple and capital. To this day, it remains an active and important religious centre. (Brian K. Smith photo | View slideshow)

Lovely photo. I'm sorry we missed these beautiful smiling ladies. There was a Khmer horse for tourists to ride on inside the walls of the temple with a man attending, unfortunately we didn't have time to enjoy a ride, so much to see. great pic.
