“A Place of Spiritual Peace and Beauty”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Don't go here unless you appreciate Buddhism or spirituality. Go here if you have respect for the divine aspect of life and feel the energy that these beautiful practitioners of Buddhism have created.

“Much nicer than Wat Phnom”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

I highly recommend a visit to Wat Ounalom - it is both more beautiful and quieter than Wat Phnom and well worth a visit. Plus they have an 'actual' eyebrow of Buddha in a back building (there are no signs to tell you this, but it is the building behind the main temple, guarded by several statues of Vishnu.

If you're taking a trip up the riverside definitely drop in and wander about.
