When you come to Phnom Penh, the most not to be missed is the Royal Palace. The Royal Palace of Phnom Penh is located in Cambodia, just like the Forbidden City in China. It was built by King Norodom from 1866 to 1870. It is located in the east of Phnom Penh and faces the Four Arms Bay formed by the Mekong River, the Tonle River and the Basha River. It is a symbol of the rights of the Kingdom of Cambodia.
The Palace of Phnom Penh is composed of a group of golden roofs and yellow walls. It is exquisitely shaped and magnificent, including more than 20 large and small palaces such as Chaya Hall, Golden Temple, Silver Temple, Dance Hall and Treasure Hall. The palace has spires, which represent prosperity. The temple is dominated by yellow and white. Yellow represents Buddhism and white represents Brahmanism.
On the cloister of the building is a magnificent relief mural depicting the Angkor Temple and the achievements and religious stories of the dynasties. However, because there is a royal residence in the north part, visitors cannot visit it. The silver temple in the south is available for visits. Although the city does not speak, the building reflects the history of the city with bricks and tiles.
Buddhist temple Wat Phnom located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia is also the highest point in Phnom Penh. It is the tallest religious structure in the whole city. It is related to the origin of the name Phnom Penh. More than 600 years ago, a woman named "Bian" saw a big tree floating on the river. After pulling ashore, she found four bronze Buddha statues and a stone statue in the tree hole. She felt that this was a god-given gift. She added a mountain slope near her home and built a temple on it for worship. Under the blessing of the gods, the city developed here, and people named the city "Phnom Penh" according to the name of the temple and the woman. Then developed the Grand Palace of Cambodia, which is full of classical architecture, a golden yellow colored structure. It is also the place where the king of Cambodia lived when he was in the country, and met with major foreign leaders. I heard that the king was single. He stayed in China for a long time when he was young. He knew a woman, but his parents did not agree for this engagement. The two sides agreed that they won't get married. It is a really touching story.
