Very beautiful complex. Spend time vising all the surrounding - around 1 hour should be enough to slowly walk all around and enjoy the atmosphere

We really enjoyed visiting Wat Ounalom, the site of Buddha's eyebrow. There weren't many tourists and we were able to enjoy the religious site in peaceful quietude. There were friendly monks who were happy to explain the significance of the temple and say a prayer with us.

Despite the tuk tuk drivers outside telling us "twenty minutes open" nearly an hour before we visited this temple properly, bizarrely at about 14:30, the main hall of this temple was still closed. Ignore the drivers at the main entrance, as they merely want you to buy their tour, however. Even if the main chamber is closed, there is still... More

Around Royal Palace you can walk to many different Pagodas and you will certainly find one or even more monks talking with you You can of course just go in and stay in meditation or pray for some moments You may even find monks doing their daily rituals and with all respects due to it you can assist

it is a series of temples near the royal palace/national museum. You can wander around the complex and see inside some of them for free. If your lucky you can see some of the monks go about their daily rituals.

Super nice temples and immediate grounds. You can tell the complex has been there for many years. If you're lucky, you'll see the lines of monks going into the temples to pray. There's something different about this place. It somehow has something a little magical about it. Definitely recommended!

Easy to find just by the Royal Palace compound. It is said to be dedicated as a repository for the remnants of some rich characters and financed by Mr. Hun Sen, present Prime Minister.

After a week in Phnom Penh I must admit I walked past Wat Ounalom many times as I thought I had seen enough temples over my 4 week visit in Cambodia. I was on a Vespa tour when my guide was showing me around the Temple and said it's worth a look inside. I'm so glad we did they were... More
