ANDY,You're in KT, aren't you? Wd you mind if I ask you to follow up with my question on your personal guide, Sokom? I mean, the gj-friendly interface? - Thank you, very much, for your previous reply and your attention - J.O.
Hi Andy,Kuk Ta Prohm looks like an ancient prasat whose original Hinduist or Buddhist idol has been replaced with a Neak Ta figure, if I'm not wrong. Know what "Kuk" means? Cheers, from Rachel, Syracuse NJ
The character inside Kuk Ta Prohm looks like Mr Dambong Daek, the same guy who stands at the entrance to Battambang and the one who can often be found at a court in Cambodia.Kuk I'm told by a archaeological expert at Sambor Prei Kuk, means temple. So for example, Sambor Prei Kuk means Forest (Prei) temple (Kuk) of Sambor.Anyone have any other ideas?Andy
