Wat Ounalom

Marie

Just along the waterfront after the Royal Palace, you will see Wat Ounalom. It is entirely free to walk in and has an active community of worshippers and monks. After the Khmer Rouge trashed it, a heavy refurbishment gives it a very new feel, despite being established in 1443. The buildings are in traditional Khmer style, very grand with red tile roofs and abundance of gold paint, the complex also has plenty of nice statues around. This is a great place to walk randomly through and soak up the serene Buddhist atmosphere. Address: On the corner of 154st and 5st, Sothearos Boulevard, Phnom Penh
