Description

The Royal Palace, built in 1866, consists of a number of structures within a pagoda-style compound one of which is The Silver Pagoda. The Silver Pagoda takes its name from the 5,000+ silver tiles and the building itself holds a number of national treasures perhaps most notable are a life-sized gold Maitreya Buddha decorated with 9584 diamonds.

Visit the National Museum which houses the world’s largest collection of Khmer art sculptures, ceramics and bronzes from different periods of Cambodian history. Over 5000 objects are on display including Angkorian era statues, lingas and other artefacts, most notably the legendary statue of the ‘Leper King.’

Continue to the pagoda of Wat Phnom which marks the legendary founding place of Phnom Penh. Finish with an overview of the Independence Monument inaugurated in 1962 to celebrate Cambodia’s independence.
