Description A belief in ghosts is an inseparable component of an everyday life all over Cambodia. In my paper, I present some of the many spirits, ghosts and demons of Cambodia as well as describe their principle aspects. I also mention a few examples of this belief, as well as give the proof that it is not merely a part of the cultural set of customs, folklore, or tales for children, but rather a living and developing tradition.
