The naked temple pics just keep on coming

Apsara is investigating yet another naked photo allegedly taken at the Angkor Archaelogical Park in Siem Reap.

Captioned “Hakuna Matata” (“no worries”), the picture, appearing on the website of 25-year-old German photographer Simon Lohmeyer, shows a couple naked at the ancient temple, posing with monkey masks.

Also shared on Facebook, the snap is the latest to cause a stir with the Cambodian authorities who on Saturday deported two American sisters for taking photos of each other’s bare buttocks at the temples. Their deportation came just a week after three French tourists were booted for “exposure of sexual organs” at the Banteay Kdei temple.

Apsara authority spokeswoman Kerya Chau Sun said the pair had dishonoured the temple.

“They appear not to obey our temple and or have good intentions,” she said. “It’s difficult to say whether this photo is Photoshopped or a real one, however, once the photo is already posted, it’s difficult to find them.”

Lohmeyer, whose website appears to feature another two naked shots at the temples, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
