Wow !!! lovely gesture of the dancer.
Not only the dancer is b'ful and graceful, her dress and ornaments are rightly complementing her b'uty. I like the 'Mudra' (gesture) also.

Seems Combodia, much like India, has a traditional dancing culture dating centuries.

Default To dArpAn: thanks

Thanks for your comment. I am not surprised that this Khmer dance resembles what you can find in India. Official religion of the Khmer empire until the middle of 13th century was Hinduism (later replaced but buddhism), so there are many traditions that came to Cambodia from India. Many of the most splending temples (including Angkor Wat) were hindu, not buddhist. So the dance has the same origin.
