Two sisters from Arizona were vacationing in Cambodia when they were caught trying to take some nude pictures of each other in Cambodia’s Preah Khan temple. They were arrested and subsequently deported to Thailand, according to ABC News.
Lindsay Adams and her sister Leslie Adams, 22 and 20, respectively, pissed off the government agency—called the Apsara Authority—in charge of the temple. They were offended because the temple is considered sacred ground.
“Perhaps they did not know Angkor is a holy site. But their inappropriate activities affect the sanctity of the place,” said Apsara Authority spokesperson Chau Sun Kerya.
Cambodia Expats Online has released numerous pictures of the women, including this topless one of Lindsay Adams:
The women also apparently took some bare-assed pictures. Keat Bunthan, a Cambodian police official, has a very Forrest Gump-esque way of describing it:
“They lowered their pants to their knees and took pictures of their buttocks,” Bunthan said.
It’s the second time in two weeks that tourists visiting the temple have been caught in the nude. Three French tourists were deported also last weekend after they pleaded guilty to taking nudes inside another temple in the complex containing the Preah Khan.
