The silver pagoda was one of the buildings I the royal palace that I enjoyed looking at both inside and outside. The tiling is impressive.

What can say, you can't see the sliver tiles on the floor as it is covered with carpet. The pagoda was packed full of Buddha statues apparently made out of gold and emerald but I have my doubts. Don't bother taking your camera as you can't take photos anyway. Not worth getting out of the a/c and sweating buckets when... More

Situated in the grounds of the Royal Palace complex, the Silver Pagoda is magnificent! The architecture is fantastic. So called because of the 5000 solid silver floor tiles, the Pagoda houses the Emerald Buddha. There is also an impressive 600 metre mural, currently being renovated. Then look at the amazing Buddha trees! Flowers sprouting from the trunk - remarkable. Most... More

It may not seem remarkable when viewed from the outside, but this pagoda will certainly stun you with its collection of national treasures including gold and jewelled Buddha statues. Most eye-catching is the small 17th century Emerald Buddha and a life-sized gold Maitreya Buddha decorated with 9584 diamonds, the largest of which weighs 25 carats. During King Norodom Sihanouk‘s pre-Khmer... More

Of course you're going to see the Silver Pagoda. Separated only by a wall, it is really part of the Royal Palace complex though, it too, includes a number of buildings and stupa. Consider it a whole and if you're in Phnom Penh the Royal Palace/Silver Pagoda is your most exquisite attraction.

The silver pagoda was the most impressive, because of all the silver tiles and the emerald Budha. You should not go in the middle of the day because it is too hot and there is practically no shade.

I know..."another temple". Not so. This is a beautiful temple, and huge. Encompasses several buildings/structures. Talk to the locals at the temple and learn about it. Experience the old man giving you a blessing from Buddha (for $1).
