Stopped here on the way to the mountain to take some photos. About 15 minutes is enough to get all of the good ones. The paintings are amazing. See my photos. Enjoy.

They are all very similar yet very different. This one has many smaller statues and buildings. The monks are working on cleaning and restoring. Free entry. Located just behind the museum. Worth a look it's not difficult to find

We enjoyed walking through the grounds of the Wat Sarawan. School was in session so we were respectful of not making noise. We took photographs and pet some of the temple cats. It was a nice respite from the busyness of Phnom Penh streets
