It was once the largest market in Asia. Each of the four sections of the building is filled with shops that sell items that range from clothing, electronics, jewellery, food, fabrics and many other items.
Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum
4.3/5
257 Reviews
Museum
When Phnom Penh fell to the Khmer Rouge, this former high school was converted into the detention and interrogation center known as S-21. Political enemies suspected of treason were brought here and tortured for confessions. Very few detainees survived S-21, but the brutal history of Toul Sleng was documented by the Khmer Rouge themselves in the postmortem photos of many of the victims. The tragedy of S-21 is almost too much to bear, whether you choose to walk through the buildings alone or with one of the excellent guides registered with the museum.
