Full of fascinating artifacts including an impressive emerald buddha , a purported buddha relic and many statues and decorative items. The silver tiled floor after which the pagoda is named is protected by a massive red rug and unless you remember to look , you won't notice it. You may see tile edges sticking out from an edge of the... More

I was hoping to take photos of the pagoda but you can't take photos inside. Still beautiful from the outside. Make sure you take shoes that are easy to remove and dress appropriately

In a sea of gorgeously designed buildings set within the south-eastern section of the Royal Palace grounds, the Silver Pagoda.stands out as a major highlight. Having survived the tumultuous years of the Khmer Rouge era where many of the Pagoda's contents were destroyed, it still retains a collection of items and artifacts which are impressive to behold. Pride of place... More

Maybe it can be the top attraction within the royal palace, a really beautiful building both externally and internally. Of course, since it is a sacred place is guarded and monitored and is strictly prohibited any kind of photo or video camera inside the temple. It's just that you will entering the perception of how beautiful and peaceful this place... More

.. I guess you could go. But it's not a big deal of a place and if you've seen active pagodas like the Schwedagon, you're likely to be disappointed. Try the Vat Phnom - a working vat - instead.

We enjoyed walking around. Didn't know we were in the Silver Pagoda as there were a lot of rugs on the floor which covered up the silver tiles. This is included in the Grand Palace ticket.

The name gives rise to spectacular thoughts of ornate silver decoration inside and out but in reality the silver pagoda refers to a solid silver tiled floor which is covered over with carpet .The pagoda is beautiful set next to the royal palace in beautiful grounds .

This was part of our tour in the palace grounds. This a truly beautiful structure and entry dress requirements are like all other temples. No photos. There are people watching you like hawks. The Buddas are impressive but unfortunately tbe silver tiles are covered with rugs with a small part exposed so you can't get a full impression. It added... More
