Buddhist monks in Cambodia
A group of Buddhist monks standing on Preah Pithu Temple (U), Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia. Buddhism in Cambodia can be traced back to at least the 5th century, when Mahayana Buddhism was practiced by subjects of the Kingdom of Funan. Today, Buddhism – particularly the Theravada branch – is practiced by the majority of Cambodians, and has influences on numerous aspects of daily life.Photograph: JJ Harrison
