Swan Princess Producer, Seldon Young is known far and wide for his Swan Princess argyle fashion. As he says "its wonderful to be proud enough of your work to wear it on your sleeve." He loves that the outfit choice has allowed him to have many fun experiences around the world with amazing Swan Princess fans!

Here we can see Seldon’s travels to Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Recently voted the Eighth Wonder of the World, Angkor Wat translates to mean “City Temple”. Just as its name implies, the temple which covers 400 acres and is 900 years old, is nestled in the heart of the ancient city of Angkor, now the modern city of Siem Reap.

Suryavarman II built the largest religious monument in the world as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu. Hindu temples are not a place for religious services; instead, they are built as homes for the god to live in. The temple is built entirely of stone and every surface is completely covered in carvings showing a record of Vishnu’s accomplishments. Construction of Angkor Wat took over 30 years and was never fully finished.


There are five stone towers on the temple to represent the five mountain ranges of Mt. Meru—the mythical home of the gods, for both Hindus and Buddhists
In the 15th century, Buddhists began using the temple and still worship there to this day.

Seldon loved visiting the beautiful temple and even found a funny tree crawling over a doorway!

We can’t wait to see where Seldon and his Swan Princess suit will travel next!
