Situated on a low hill off Santepheap Street, Sihanoukville, Wat Krom is another fine example of Cambodian culture and religion. There are many old tombs around, as well as statues, especially many-headed serpents. There is the procession of monks, the 'gold' reclining Buddha, but the...More

We went here as it is a standard stop during tours about Sihanoukville. It is a pleasant place but was full of too much rubbish (trash). The young monks walking about could not bother to pick it up!

Nothing exqusite here. While there all several excellent Bhuddha images, we found them lacking compared to those in Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Worth may 15 minutes

Wat Krom is a beautiful temple. There is lots to look at. I was here for New Year so there was lots going on. Well worth a visit. I hired a tuk tuk to get here.

Nice little temple. Good photo opportunity. Added a nice change to Sihanoukville. Only small but better kept then so many other places in Sihanoukville

The value of visiting many temples is the history, so would recommend going with a guide. It will be warm and humid so take lots of water and light clothes. Nice temple, laying-down Buddha, and impressive cemetery.

Like every Temple here in Cambodia, so very stunning wrapped in a Peace that is seldom found. Well worth a visit.

A must see when visiting Sihanoukville. Beautiful temple surround by a sculpture garden of Buddha and other figures. Has an active school and living quarters for monks on the grounds.

We approached this temple on foot from the rear and saw the real Cambodia. We saw a school and monks, as well as a local business and squalor. The temple was fabulous, with its ornate golden buddhas (including a reclining buddha) as well as the...More
