Khmer Bridge or Pont des Najas, with Cambodian half-human, half-snake deities, part of the Indochinese village built for the Colonial Exhibition of 1907, in the Jardin d'Agronomie Tropicale, or Garden of Tropical Agronomy, in the Bois de Vincennes in the 12th arrondissement of Paris, France. Behind is part of the bambouseraie or bamboo garden. The garden was first established in 1899 to conduct agronomical experiments on plants of French colonies. In 1907 it was the site of the Colonial Exhibition and many pavilions were built or relocated here. The garden has since become neglected and many structures overgrown, damaged or destroyed, with most of the tropical vegetation disappeared. The site is listed as a historic monument.
