A bit of a climb up the steps to the top on a very hot day. But it was interesting to see so much gold in a place of worship. Was told to take my hat off as I had forgot and remember to take off your shoes whenever you enter a temple. Maybe not worth a visit if you... More

Again at this temple I had a guide which is useful as you are able to find more about the place rather than just wandering around. This is at the exact centre of Phnom Penh and many people travel here to make wishes for a variety of thins - lottery numbers, good health, luck etc. If their wish comes true... More

This temple was a steep drive up the hill but is very nice inside. There isn't much at the top other then the temple. You can do the entire thing in less than 30 minutes.

Spend an hour or so visiting this, after all, the city is named after this. It is a small buddhist temple on a hillock (artificial) but there is a fee to visit it. What surprised me was offerings of meat and eggs in a shrine on one side of it.

You have to pay - as a tourist - a small entrance fee and then you can explore the foundation place of Phnom Penh.

A place to look at Asian historical temple built in 1372, located on hilltop. A perfect place for mediation and relaxation.

Set up on a small hill, Wat Phnom has a park and trees at its base and although not large, it has a wonderful atmosphere inside. A visit won't take long, but for me was one of the highlights of Phnom Penh.

This is a good visit - most temples in Phnom Penh tend to look the same after a while. This is a great example with enough variety to make it worth the effort.
