There was the sweetest tuk tuk driver who took me on a super adventure. I wanted to go places off the tourist track and... More

Must see part of Phnom Penh. Beautiful grounds and great history. Recommend that you have a guide to get the history of the place.

A visit to Wat Ounalom allows insight into the spiritual teachings, philosophies and history of Buddhism in Cambodia. As the name indicates, King Ponhea Yat - meaning ‘Eyebrow Temple’ - was built to enshrine an eyebrow hair (ounalom) of Lord Buddha, and the shrine was once home to more than 500 monks as well as the Buddhist Institute’s library that...

The style of this pagoda is a combination of 3 religions. Hindu and the two types of Buddhism. There is a Stupa behind this. Stupa is the eyebrow of Buddha. Good photographic opportunities.

It's free! Unlike the Wat Phomn, you can freely enter, but do wear proper attire as this is a worship ground. Speak to the monks to get to know about the place.

Wat Ounalom is yet another pagoda to visit in Phnom Penh. It is a peaceful and medium sized pagoda and free to visited. Worth visiting if you like buddhist architecture and pagodas and less touristy then the silver pagoda.

It's worth a visit. There is no entrance fees. Inside it is a very quiet place where you can just get around and take photos.

It was very peaceful to wander around within the grounds. There were roosters wandering with us! Beautiful buildings and landscaping. Doesn't take long to see it, but a nice stop on the way to or from the palace. Very pretty and also free!

Dominates horizon if you approaching on Narodom Blvd, I consider it one of the best view in PP. Next after Mekong. Unbelievably captative a giant green clock, showing seconds! Get a walk around the hill, - advice of a buddhist.
