Tashan Temple is situated in Tashan. One of the images of Phnom Penh is the statue of the woman on the highest point of the slope. The earth is exceptionally delightful and there are Khmer-style reliefs all through the sanctuary. Climb the highest point of the slope to climb the pinnacle to sit above the city. There is likewise a moving tale about Tashan Temple. As per legend, in the fourteenth century, a lady named "Ben" got a statue of a Buddha gliding on the Mekong River and constructed it on a slope to assemble a sanctuary to adore it. Step by step form into a clamoring town.

Stayed locally and crossed the road into the memorial park and Wat Phnom. We paid $1 each to enter the grounds at night.
The lighting against the architecture was stunning. Best viewed in my opinion at night to get the real feel for the temple and grounds.
I would advise going with company. The park and temple are in the middle of the main roundabout. Crossing the road to enter is fairly easy.
Wat Phnom, which means "mountain temple," is one of Phnom Penh's oldest temples. The ambiance is tranquil and peaceful from atop a 27-meter-high man-made hill. The temple is wonderfully lit after nightfall.
Wat Phnom is made up of multiple shrines, a viharn, and a big chedi. The temple has been rebuilt and refurbished multiple times over the years, the most recent being in 1926. Visitors must ascend the flight of stairs to the top to reach the temple to see the beauty of it up close.
