Fireworks in Cambodia

|

In Cambodia, fireworks say "Kam Chroch" in Khmer language, use for celebration during traditional ceremonies.

If you are a foreigner and can read the Khmer language you might well be horrified to read signs along Cambodian roads saying, "All kinds of kam chroch are sold here", as in English this literally means, "All kinds of missiles sold here".

That may sound frightening, but these are not like the missiles that kill people, because it is when Cambodians organize special ceremonies or during Khmer national celebrations, that these "missiles" are exploded.

Kam chroch may be translated into English with two different meanings. Sometimes, kam chroch does mean "missile" or "rocket"--rockets that Cambodians saw kill and maim many people during the civil war. But the second meaning, and by far the more frivolous, is "fireworks".

History of Cambodia

The golden age of Cambodia was between the 9th and 14th century, during the Angkor period, during which it was a powerful and prosperous empire that flourished and dominated almost all of inland south east Asia. However, Angkor would eventually collapse after much in-fighting between royalty and constant warring with its increasingly powerful neighbors, notably Siam and Dai Viet. Many temples from this period however, like Bayon and Angkor Wat still remain today, scattered throughout Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam as a reminder of the grandeur of Khmer arts and culture. Cambodia's unparalleled achievements in art, architectures, music, and dance during this period have had a great influence on many neighboring kingdoms, namely Thailand and Laos.

Cambodian Culture

Cambodia Culture has had a rich and varied history dating back many centuries, and has been heavily influenced by India and China. Throughout Cambodia's long history, a major source of inspiration was from religion. Throughout nearly two millennium, Cambodians developed a unique Khmer belief from the syncreticism of indigenous animistic beliefs and the Indian religions of Buddhism and Hinduism. Indian culture and civilization, including its language and arts reached mainland Southeast Asia around the 1st century A.D. Its is generally believed that seafaring merchants brought Indian customs and culture to ports along the gulf of Thailand and the Pacific while trading with China.
