A smallish temple in the heart of the city. Does get crowded during Chinese New Year. Also, does have a small charge to enter for tourists, but not that much.

The Chedi there was built in the 15th Century. Historic Temple. Not far from Downtown. I believe it's an active temple, so please respect the culture...No shorts/take your shoes off if you plan on going inside the temple...

This Wat was cool. There are a number of stairs so he prepared for that. You have to take off your shoes if you go inside but there are stairs/things to lean against if you need a bit of support to get your shoes back...More

We chanced upon this in our travels and as Westerners we were charged US$1 to walk around it. It's okay, I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it though.

A place to reflect in quietly. To watch the locals come and pray. An attractive monument away from the centre. I like the fact that unlike the Royal Palace this is an active monument.

Amazing the sense of peace you get in the middle of the city here. There aren’t a lot of parks or green spaces in PP. I didn’t realise how notable that was until I got to Wat Phnom. One of my guides of Lost Plate...More

It looks nicer at night time than day time, but at night time you can not enter to the place and the sorrounders are not safe at night. If you read about the history of the place before you visit it, will let you understand...More

Unfortunately, this once glorious temple exists only as a shell of it's former self. The most important Wat in Cambodia. Government and fake government individuals asking for entrance fees. This place has always been free in the past and locals would fill the park daily...More

While there is no written dress code, it is preferable to be dressed appropriately in any and all places of worship ... a standard that is followed globally i.e. respecting the sentiments of others
