Signs: Poor Naga


This was a picture I took using my monopod at Ta Phrom in the Angkor Wat complex. And when I checked it to see if it turned out okay, I saw that there was a sign behind me so I had to take a closer look. 

It says, 'Don't sit on Naga.'  The sign was all over the long balustrade which was the body of Naga, the seven headed serpent.  It was a good reminder to tourists to help preserve the Angkor Temples by doing their best not to be careless about the old structures.
Poor Naga.  With our schedule, we didn't get to sit anyway because we wanted to see as much as we can.
