“The tourist admitted that they really did a stupid thing,” – stated in a statement by the authorities of Cambodia.
This is a second time in the last two weeks, when tourists visiting the temple complex were caught without clothes. In late January, three Frenchmen were detained here as well.
French tourists were found by temple security guards during the most embarrassing moment: guests from Europe climbed inside the ancient temple Banteay Kdei, undressed and staged a photo shoot in the nude. Detained tourists were handed over to the local police. Despite the fact that the French tourists have apologized, a case was still opened. According to representatives of local authorities, the temple is a place of worship and nude photo shoots in a religious building offend the feelings of many pilgrims.
Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Cambodia, dedicated to the god Vishnu – it is one of the largest religious buildings in the world and it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The temples were built near the ancient capital of the Khmer state, the city of Angkor, which used to have half a million inhabitants. The complex was abandoned in the 15th century, and European explorers discovered it in 1860. Angkor Wat is considered to be one of the symbols of Cambodia; it is depicted on the national flag and the national emblem of the country.
