    We felt so shocked to see all bones of victims killed during khmer rough. They are all innocent. Wish Cambodian not meet this situation in the future.

    Just able to see from outside but I've been told that the palace will open Dec 1 2022. So hope that will turn out that way. From outside it is not too bad, the impression from inside must be much great(er)

    Close to the Independence Monument, Wat Langka is one of the oldest wats in the city founded around 1440 which derives its name from Sri Langka where Theravada Buddhism originated. Nice wat to visit & if you are nearby for a few days, you may wish to enquire about meditation sessions.
    Lovely potted plants adorn the compound where there are many buildings & ornate monuments. I was able to enter some of the buildings, really quiet, beautiful & restful to investigate, an oasis of peace in a very busy city center. I was here during the rainy season which is cooler & softer sunlight for photography. Generally, very clean & pretty but sadly, almost deserted. I think I was the only visitor.

    Easy enough to find just off the main road. Very serene place to walk around. We wandered in for a stroll as we took in the city. Very pretty.

    The Stupa of Princess Kantha Bopha is located in the grounds of the Royal Palace Complex.

    A historical landmark, the large stupa is fenced off from the public but can be viewed by buying a ticket to the Royal Palace.

    A large silver stupa with lots of decorative plants and a great addition to the Royal Palace grounds.
