Ode to the shrimp temple

On the way to a silk manufacturer in Cambodia, we came across a temple with large statues of shrimp outside. While yes there are frequently statues outside of temples, they typically are not statues of shrimp……

However considering the role of small dried shrimp in a majority of Thai dishes, it surprises me that I had to go to Cambodia to see a shrimp temple.
