Stopped here on the way to the mountain to take some photos. About 15 minutes is enough to get all of the good ones. The paintings are amazing. See my photos. Enjoy.

Actually, the entrance on Street 172 sees the most local traffic, including monks preparing to make their morning rounds. Not on most tourists' agendas, this is a local, working wat.

They are all very similar yet very different. This one has many smaller statues and buildings. The monks are working on cleaning and restoring. Free entry. Located just behind the museum. Worth a look it's not difficult to find

They are working at restoring this Wat. At times in the past it has been rather dirty, not the best Wat to see in Phnom Penh.

We enjoyed walking through the grounds of the Wat Sarawan. School was in session so we were respectful of not making noise. We took photographs and pet some of the temple cats. It was a nice respite from the busyness of Phnom Penh streets

If you pass by it is ok to visit. But 1$ for tourists and free to everyone else. It is not that we don t want to pay but we feel so ripped off.... If you come up the stairs on the other side there...More
