Aiming far back: Preserving the ancient art of Khmer archery

Siem Reap, Cambodia — “The activities conducted at the Royal Archery Club’s soft opening ceremony earlier this year were a performance of what Khmer Empire troops practiced before going out for battle.”

Royal Archery Club founder Sa Dina told The Post: “We opened to the public about eight months ago after developing the 5ha plot of empty land by digging fish ponds and clearing land.”

Located in Steung village about 5km from Bakorng temple and 24km from Siem Reap town, the Royal Archery Club is becoming an ancient village in the “land of Gods”.
