This place is walkable from Sisowath Quay. The building was really pretty and the ambience was of an actual temple - not the touristy ones. Lots of statues in the area. I love it!

Beautiful building in the grounds make this a must see if you're in Phnom Penh. Elephant statues and others in he surrounding gardens. Monks peacefully sleeping or reading in the temple. Took a tuk tuk from our hotel near the Central Market for $3US.

Free temples near royal palace and riverfront, it's the most scenic of all temples in Phnom Penh. Look around as there are a few picturesque temples in the grounds.

I arrived very early in the morning and was greeted by a grey haired old man who opened early for me. Then I was blessed and walked out feeling very special… Then an amazing thing happened.

A visit to Wat Ounalom allows insight into the spiritual teachings, philosophies and history of Buddhism in Cambodia. As the name indicates, King Ponhea Yat - meaning ‘Eyebrow Temple’ - was built to enshrine an eyebrow hair (ounalom) of Lord Buddha, and the shrine was once home to more than 500 monks as well as the Buddhist Institute’s library that...

The style of this pagoda is a combination of 3 religions. Hindu and the two types of Buddhism. There is a Stupa behind this. Stupa is the eyebrow of Buddha. Good photographic opportunities.

It's free! Unlike the Wat Phomn, you can freely enter, but do wear proper attire as this is a worship ground. Speak to the monks to get to know about the place.
