The main temple in Phnom Penh. A special place.

The interesting part for me was that I could do a walking meditation with ease. The whole place could be more looked after on the outside though. Spiritual place to me.

A little oasis in PP. I've been a few times with friends and took my tuk tuk driver, who had never been. What a lovely peaceful spot outside the chaos of PP. Elevated, serene, calm and beautiful. You could take a writing pad, a book or paints and just have a few hours to be calm and creative. The fruit... More

This temple is worth a visit, it is very ornate and if you have a guide then it makes it all the more interesting as he/she will explain the rites and rituals in greater detail. great for photo opportunities also. Remember to ensure that your knees and shoulders are covered and that you take your shoes off before entering.

Not the biggest or most spectacular but only 1$ to have a look. Could do with a little bit of TLC on the outside but definitely worth a look, interstitial artwork inside the temple itself. Was also to go in without covering up which suprised me, but do remove shoes

Not too crowded and nobody tries to stick to you. One can go about the pagoda at one's own pace and without being bothered by anyone. Open green spaces are a bonus.

Place is so hot and nothing much to see. Guard does not speak English so difficult to communicate. Need to take stairs to go to the center.

Everyone is very helpful. It only costs $1.00 to get in. You are allowed to take pictures inside. You will be asked to take off your shoes inside the temple. Be respectful when taking pictures, People are praying here. Be careful with the street dogs.

I love the place right from the first look. A nice and superb pagoda that should go for visit. There is also a resort so that we need to pay 1$ for visiting as they informed. There are all green with many plants around, nice view and many people come to pray so we may feel much religious beliefs and... More

We visited early evening after having dinner near the river and it was all lit up and looked incredibly beautiful. The temple is up on a mound and is a peaceful haven in a manic city. There was no one else there and we just wandered around. It feels safe as they have security there - one followed us at... More
