The interior is really nice and the exterior architecture is amazing. There are three temples that you can enter and visit. At the time we visited, they were mourning the king's death so there was a huge memorial to him at the temple. The locals like to relax in the shade of the temples and play games. FREE

The headquarters of Cambodia Buddhism with well kept grounds right on the river - very peaceful feeling around the temples.

This temple is a peaceful and quiet spot shielded from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh. The monks were very friendly. Love everything about Buddhism, so this Wat is ideal for me.

This is near the Palace - with the King's funeral things were a little confusing in this area - the Temple was average with a huge space but very few statues - monks were not too friendly either

Lovely area and nice looking Temple, but they all seem to have this obsession with Led lights as decoration !
