I visited this temple recently. It was simple yet beautiful. It has a large amount Silver statues and prayer items. The Buddha statue in gold was simply mesmerising.

The many temples are beautiful, but we especially liked the frescoes. A guidebook would have added to the experience.

Didn't quiet expect the floor of pagoda get its name . It was silver all over. Various Buddha statues in gold & Bejewelled with various gemstones. The main draw was the Buddha with diamond of various carets studded on it . The jade Buddha right on the top looked a tad bit lacklustre. All in all interesting. Right next door... More

The silver floor tiles were fascinating. The ambience was deeply spiritual, and highly ornate at the same time. The decoration of the Buddhas made us wonder whether he himself would have preferred greater simplicity.....

Part of the Royal palace. Interesting architecture. It houses the emerald buddha. The floor is covered with silver tiles. There is another life size buddha covered in diamonds. Worth a visit if you are in Phnom Penh.
