Robaim Tep Monorum or Happiness of the Gods and Goddesses Dance is one of the most popular and beautiful dances in the Cambodian court repertoire. It has been performed as a dance of blessing to end a performance.

The distinctive interweaving floor patterns of the Tep Monorum, as well as the complimentary relationship of male and female, in which the male is always on the female’s left, all reveal the importance of balance in Khmer social interaction. The chorus describes the erotic pursuit of the heavenly maidens by the male celestials as well as their harmonious union.
