A lotus flower in Cambodia
Considered a sacred flower by Hindus and Buddhists, the lotus plays a significant role in Cambodian life. The lotus farms like the one shown in the image are a familiar scene in rural Cambodia.
Cambodia is the only country in the world where the lotus is farmed commercially. The lotus flower, its fruit, and seeds are used in a variety of products. The fibers extracted from the stems of the lotus flower are used in textiles.
