In the city center of Phnom Penh, the southwest of the Independence Monument was very convenient in the past. It has a history of several hundred years. Of course, it has been rebuilt. After all, for some historical reasons, there are temples with Southeast Asian style here. They are all gold-roofed, and other things are good. The interior decoration is good.
Lanka Temple is one of the five oldest temples in Phnom Penh, located in the southwest of the Independent Monument. Built by King Ponhea Yat (1405-1467). The earliest functions were Khmer and Sri Lankan monks'learning and conference centers. After being seriously destroyed in the Khmer Rouge era, it was rebuilt in 1882 to vividly reproduce the frescoes and bright ground of the Buddha's image. Buddhist holy places, or very characteristic!
Many of the temples in Phnom Penh are open for free. The Lanka Temple is just opposite Independence Square, next to Sihanouk Avenue. There are free visitors, no photos and slippers when entering the house. The people inside are very polite to introduce them to you in the local language. I feel very enthusiastic. Excellent.
A peaceful pagoda and temple grounds with places to meditate and speak with monks. Especially pretty in early morning or at sunset.

Isn't it uncomfortable to walk in the intense tropical sunshine? The straight road was rather dull. Fortunately, I visited a splendid Thai Buddhist temple and a spacious Boulevard of egg flowers. The tree of egg flowers was tall and luxuriant, stretching for about 1 kilometer. The snow-white flowers were huge and dense. The fragrance of the road fascinated me. Unfortunately, I dared not stay in the sun for a long time.
