[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Wat Maha Leap is the last remaining wooden pagoda in Cambodia. It is found about an hourís boat ride or moto drive southeast of Kampong Cham town on the eastern side of the Mekong river. The temple is said to be over 100 years old and the intricately painted columns are made out of whole teak trunks. Wat Maha Leap only survived the genocidal period of the Khmer Rouge period because the temple and itsí grounds were used as a hospital.
