Just Another Temple in Cambodia – But Oh wat a Temple!


If the King’s Palace in Cambodia is all too formal/expensive for you I have an alternative that is close by and does not cost a cent.   Walk up the road with the Palace walls to your left.  A couple of streets up on the right is a very old temple.

Gateway to temple complex

Everything here is crumbling but of course this adds to the ambience.

There were no mangy dogs and the monks are happy for you to look around.

There are some interesting statues in the grounds – not sure what is going on here!

Loved this statue

It really pays to screw your courage to the sticking post and have a wander off the beaten track – this is what you could find.  Amazing stuff. And of course you can have a  well-earned drink at the Foreign Correspondents Club just down the road.

  1. You know, I was kind of ambivalent about going to Cambodia next year, but after going through your posts I’m off to book my flight! Wat a temple indeed!!

  2. Your great photographs make me sorry I missed this temple – too busy gettting to the FCC for a beer and a table by the window.

  3. Great shots of a charming, unassuming wat. What did you think of Phnom Penh? I wish I’d spent a couple of weeks there, there seems to be a pretty active expat scene. I had to leave a reply – you were the first person to “Like” me. So it’s real: I’m out:)

  4. That temple looks amazing. I’m actually going to Cambodia in July so I’m going to add it to my list of attractions to see:)

I wold love to hear your thoughts on this post.
