National Museum in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
The National Museum is situated next the Royal Palace. Buddha Statues, Garuda Statues and great Vishnu Statues from the Angkor Wat Temples are shown inside (to take photos inside is forbidden). Most of the Khmer Statues from Angkor Wat were destroyed or just stolen. Even today it happens that statues from Angkor Wat are sold on the “black market” for art and antiques. Only a few exhibits were given back to the museum. For everybody who visited Angkor Wat it is a great joy to see some statues who once stood in the Temples. The museum is beautiful!
