Inside the hallowed confines of the temple complex, a remarkable moment unfolded before my lens. Here, in the serene embrace of Banteay Kdei temple, a Buddhist nun graces the scene with her radiant smile and joyous laughter. Our guide, the affable 'Ta,' possesses a rare gift for creating moments of genuine connection and mirth. It's within these shared experiences, like our encounter with this joyful nun, that the true spirit of Cambodia's ancient temples shines through. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
