Battambang caves 8 - Banan area pt 3

The Banan area of Battambang, Cambodia has many caves. See other posts part 1 and part 2.

On the final day in this area, the teacher took us to an area to the right (west) of the main hill. 3 men and a dog joined us and we visited 5 caves, and the dog came in every cave.
Our guides

The first cave, Laang Roykun. It’s just one big chamber. In the entrance were 2 nice coloured drawings of Buddha, and also a rabbit, and then inside the cave, the teacher started to write his name and date on the wall in blue paint. I realised it was he who had drawn on of the Buddhas.

The school teacher carefully painted his name on the wall.

The dog waited patiently whilst we were surveying
