"-Royal Plowing Ceremony in Siem Reap-"

As far as I know, it's the first time that the "Royal Plowing Ceremony" is held in Siem Reap province. It has been always celebrated on the terrace in front of National Museum called "Veal Mén" in Phnom Penh. The event attracted hundreds of thousands locals and tourists who almost flooded Angkor Thom. The event is held on the 0205010.

Even the king's car needed to take another route to enter Angkor Thom as its main gate was flooded by both local and international visitor who try to entered Angkor Thom to witness the event.

I have never seen a scene like this before.

They even climbed over the ruined temple so they could see the event.

The Royal pavilion built over the Elephant Terrace overlooking the ceremony.

The acting King and Queen in the ceremony are from Royal family this year.
