The Sihanoukville Bronze Statue Memorial Hall is located in the center of the main road in the center of Phnom Penh, across the street from the Independence Monument. The weather was very good on the day when I went to Phnom Penh, and the sun shined on the bronze statue, which gave a sense of holiness.
When you come to Cambodia, you must visit the Sihanoukville bronze statue Jinyangtang, just like when you are in China, you must visit the Chairman Mao Memorial Hall in Beijing. The Sihanoukville Bronze Elephant Memorial Hall is not as majestic as imagined, but he handled it on the entire square, witnessing the most prosperous place in Cambodia getting better step by step, whether it is night or day, whether it is sunny or rainy. I think many foreign friends come here to take pictures. They all want to leave their mark on Cambodia.
Free attractions. 100 meters to the east of the Independence Monument, in the very center of Independence Square, stands the Statue of King Father Norodom Sihanouk. Sihanouk died of illness in Beijing on October 15, 2012, at the age of 90. The Royal Government of Cambodia expressed its gratitude to Norodom Sihanouk, the father of Cambodia’s independence and national reconciliation, for his historic contributions to national sovereignty independence, national reconciliation, peace and development, on February 20, 2013 Construction of this memorial hall began on October 8th of that year. The pagoda with the bronze statue is 27 meters high, and the bronze statue is 4.5 meters high. The pagoda is decorated with gold leaf.
Statue of King Father best to come there before 9am and after 3pm. The area could be too hot during midday as the trees around are not tall and big enough to provide cool shade.This is a popular place for having exercise during early mornings and early evenings especially weekends.
It's a very clean and well maintained monument with a good atmosphere. A local soy ice-cream man came to sell us ice lollies while under the sun's inferno. A memorable moment.
I don’t know why it’s called Prince Sihanouk’s Memorial Hall. The memorial hall in China must be very large. For example, the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Guangzhou is a very large garden, and the memorial hall here is just a pavilion. Below stands a statue of Prince Sihanouk with a height of 4.5 meters. During the day, he is just a pavilion on the square. But at night, I think the scenery here is quite beautiful, especially the spire above the memorial hall. The lights are not so flickering at the time, but they are very gentle.
I believe that every Cambodian people will never forget their Prince Sihanouk, who led the Cambodian people out of the French colony and made great contributions to the independence of Cambodia. So I come to Tongxiang every day to take a look. This time it was a coincidence that a bird happened to be on top of King Sihanouk Qin's head. He also seemed to stand on the shoulders of giants, looking at the current peace.
