Aiming far back: Preserving the ancient art of Khmer archery

Traditional and modern sets of bows and arrows are laid on a long table in the Royal Archery Club, established in Siem Reap town’s Prasat Bakong District, where visitors are introduced to the traditional form of Khmer archery or its modern equivalent.

Visitors can choose traditional Khmer archery that was used in ancient times or modern equipment that is used in official sporting competitions.
