The Racing Boats / Pirogues

The racing boats, or pirogues, resemble those shown in the bas-reliefs at Angkor, and are propelled, not by means of oars, but by vessels held in the hands of the rowers resembling shallow wash-bowls.

In the distance are the smooth, bare trunks of the flamboyant tree, or “flame of the forest” Other trees of this region are the teak, dipterocarpus, kapok, sao, tamarind, etc. The bullock cart in the foreground is the kind in common use. In the trees alongside every road are hundreds of monkeys. These animals are never harassed by the Cambodians, who have an almost religious respect for them. The monkeys pay no attention to passerby.

Small Temple Situated Inside the Inner Gallery, But Distinct From the Main Temple

The roof of the inclosing gallery and the side of the great temple are shown. Outside of and below the gallery is the outer gallery. Each gallery is quadrilateral, surrounding the main temple, and its inner walls are covered with bas-reliefs.
