This review is in no way meant to shed poor light on this beautiful place of Buddhist worship.. but to make comment on the trade which sadly flourishes on its doorstep.. it is, in my view,a business run for profit by the worst and cruelest of human beings ... the imprisonment of hundreds of small fragile birds into crowded and dirty cages.. where in overcrowded conditions the fly about in panic and fear, often breaking wings, or dying from fright! The business survives on selling the birds for release to visiting Buddhist devotees.. the discovery of their sufferings impelled me to buy as many as i had $$ on me that day.. without shade or water the conditions i found them in was appalling!! This is one side to life in Cambodia which has left me with a memory that will sadden me forever

A small Buddhist temple in the middle of Siem Reap, right next to the raffles Grand hotel. Vendors selling lotus, turtles, birds and incense line the back of the temple. A popular place of worship with a big Buddha statue. Shoes need to be removed at the entrance and shoe minders quickly line up to look after them. Payment of a few rials to them is adequate. Incense and flowers can be offered and blessings sort. A nice change from the temples of Angkor.

As you walk around the city, don't forget to look for this little gem. The buddha inside is beautiful. Please note this is a working temple and odds are there will be a wedding taking place which is very nice to see. The pageantry of these weddings is very colorful and watching the wedding parties get ready and do photography in the park next door is something that rivals the number of weddings Honolulu and Las Vegas do.

Very popular with locals and eastern visitors alike, situated close to town. We had just been to the Angkor National Museum and our guide bought us here as visitors ask for a blessing prior to touring all of the local temples.

While we were here a wedding group had a blessing and their wedding photos taken.

Nearby is the Shrine to Ya Tap in the centre of a traffic island.

Behind is the Royal Park housing bats sleeping in the trees as this is a protected area for them.

Across the road is the Royal Residence.
