As the name suggest the floor is made up of silver tiles - most of which are covered by carpet. The walls are covered with cases after case of Buddhas - all sizes, wooden, jade, marble etc. I may be a bit of a Philisitine but by the end I did feel 'If you've seen one Buddha, you've seen them...

I was really looking forward to visiting the Silver Pagoda. Located on the grounds of the Grand Palace, we went without a guide. Guides are stationed at the entrance for hire. We felt we didn't need that much information. The Silver Pagoda's significance is the thousand of silver tiles on the floor. The problem was most of the floor was... More

Good to see while at the Royal Palace. A bit underwhelming as it is a 'must see' in Phnom Penh. Lots of small statues and other relics inside but minimal information on what you are looking at. Only a small section of silver tiles is visible as the rest are covered in carpet to walk on. You have to take... More

The pagoda is nice, with a beautiful setting. The emerald Buddha was a magnificent to see and so was the one with the name diamonds...however was very keen to see the sliver tiles but they are covered with carpet....so that was a bit disppointing. They have one or tiles open..so it's definitely there. Recomend a visit though with in Phnom... More

Nice pagoda and impressive tale of the silver panels, but most of course covered. Huge collection of gold and silver donated to royalty and pagoda by high ranking officials etc. - makes one wonder whether money could have been better spent in the country.

A beautiful temple. It is very popular with the tourists, but I think many don't understand that this pagoda is to honor Lord Buddha. Not just a tourist site. But again, something one should see during their visit to Phnom Penh and Cambodia.

Quite a fascinating monument. Too bad they won't allow us to take pictures inside. I almost missed the silver, because only a portion of the silver tiles was showing, as the rest of the floor was covered with carpet. There were a number of treasures inside and gold and jade, a lot of historical artifacts. Don't miss the small 17th... More

As one steps into the Pagodalocatd within the Royal Palace enclosure one is just awestruck with the magnificence of the floors, each tile made of silver. Photography is prohibited so one just has to see to believe the beauty and splendour that exists within the temple premises.
