(CNN) -- [Updated 2:30 p.m. Monday, February 11] This extravagant entrance leads to a crematorium built for Norodom Sihanouk, the Cambodian king who died in October at the age of 90.

Sihanouk reigned for more than 60 years before he abdicated in 2004 because of poor health. He was cremated last week, almost four months after his death, and many Cambodians attended his funeral procession through the capital of Phnom Penh. See video of the procession

Elizabeth Becker, the author of "When the War Was Over: Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge Revolution," told CNN after the king abdicated that Sihanouk was "larger than life" and brought both good and bad to his country. You can read more about the king's legacy in this obituary from The Guardian, which calls Sihanouk "a Cambodian patriot who lacked neither energy nor courage. He was also often a conniving, arbitrary ruler who can be accused of never allowing his country's politicians the time or the room to reach maturity."

Congrats to readers "Zant Liu" and "Raizen" for being the first to answer correctly in this week's photo challenge!

[Original post] Do you know where this photo was taken?

If you think you know the answer -- or if you just want to take a wild guess -- post it in the comments area below. Later in the day, we'll reveal where the photo was taken and give credit to those who figured it out first. (The more detail, the better!)

Each Monday morning, we'll post a new photo and challenge you to tell us its origin. The photo might be related to a prominent news story or theme -- or it might just be something that caught our eye.

Good luck!
