I went in the evening, it was Easy to find, & very pretty in the evening sky. A short little stroll around the grounds, the temple itself is very small. Worthwhile & just $1.

After knowing the name of phnom penh came from this lady (grandma penh), we decide to pay a visit to this temple. A stone statue of lady penh, whose dress (different colour) were changed every day. A stupa behind the temple placing the ashes of last king of khmer, king ponhea yat. Spend around half an hour here will do.

I would recommend this place. It is touristy but that is what you are there for right? Go mid day when its cloudy.

An impressive staircase and temple with no particular or exceptional features. Statues of Buddha, musicians as in many Cambodian temples

This is worth a visit if you are in Phnom Penh and at the riverside. While it has its beauty I would not say it's worth going out of your way to visit. There is also a 1USD fee for tourists which I did not experience at other Wat's.

Wat Phnom is a Buddhist temple built in 1372, and stands 27 metres above the ground. It is the tallest religious structure in the city. We visited with our tour group with local guide provided. He was certainly knowledgeable on the history of the building and site. Nice gardens and trees surround the building. No monkey business here, they are... More
