Just visited the tempel and I've seen so much more beautiful tempels than this one! It's so small and full with candles and a mixture of statues... If you have some time to spare it's a good temple to visit. It' also close to the Tonlé Sap so that's a plus ;-).

I walk a round Wat Phnom to see the whole view of Big stupa that built in 16th century at the center of Phnom Penh city, nice people and beautiful place.

$1 entry fee for foreigners. The temple is a little run down but still is quite imposing. The grounds are well kept and quite nice with benches for resting and enjoying the relatively peaceful environment. The stupa is visible from most central areas of the city.

You have to visit this Pagoda site early days of your Phenom penh visit as this is the Pagoda of the woman whose name is of Phnom Penh! Many stairs up makes this highest area of the city.

Wat Phnom is a temple located on a hill in the middle of Phnom Penh. If you're going around the city seeing the sights, this is assuredly on your list. However, there's not much to it, just some stairs and a temple at the top. There are monkeys all over and they aren't shy about snatching food right out of... More

I found this place interesting - lots to see, including monkeys. There is a nice park in the surrounding area.

After visiting Angkor Wat and numerous temples in Thailand, this visit leaves much to be desired. It's run down and small. Drive by it, but save your $1

Visiting here just after coming from Bangkok, where we'd visited some of the temples and palaces, you are reminded that Pnomh Penh is a much poorer country, with a terrible history including a recent period of imposed atheism. This - I assume - goes some way to explaining this relatively drab temple. (I mean, drab relative to the beautifully maintained... More
