Well this place was amaaazing..... I have never seen so many beautiful buddhas in one place. But the thing was, we got engaged with walking around, and then didn't see the silver.. Don't be tricked. The silver is right under your feet, under the carpet, when you first walk in. A wonderful place.

This is beside the Royal Palace complex and should not be missed! It houses the Emerald Buddha and another gold Buddha studded with thousands of diamonds I couldnt believe the lack of security here as the pieces are so beautiful... and priceless! Even the floor is made of silver tiles-although you can only see some of them as a carpet... More

The pagoda is nice and there are lots of Buddha statues and other displays inside, but all in all we did not spend a lot of time in there. From outside it looks great though!

Located in the Kings Palace grounds, this attractive complex is very interesting with plenty to see. There was restoration in progress to some of the buildings but overall a very enjoyable experience

Part of the Royal Palace complex so go and see it if you are there. Lots of displays inside and a silver floor, but that's about it. I think time would be better spent by the pool at the hotel.

the complex is beautiful. I found it very upsetting to see all the gold, silver, diamonds and every precious stone and precious metal on display here. In contrast outside the gate there are starving children, land mine victims with limbs missing and poor disabled people with nothing. No chance to change the appalling conditions in which they live. Collection boxes... More

The exhibits were quite interesting but there were too little information provided for the items displayed. While they charge a fee for bringing a camera at the entrance (same entrance to the Royal Palace), you are NOT allowed to take photographs inside the Silver Pagoda. It could also be quite crowded inside at certain times.

Be sure to notice the silver tiles on the floor because most of them are covered by carpet. The Silver Pagoda is part of the Royal Palace complex and is perhaps the most interesting building open to tourists. There are many statues of Buddhas, both large and small, and examples of Cambodian religious art.
