Wat Ounalom (Monastery) in Phnom Penh. Wat Ounalom is the largest and oldest monastery in Phnom Penh, with the largest Pagoda in Phnom Penh. The pagoda is dedicated to the Buddhist relics that were welcomed back from Ceylon in 1890. Now it is the headquarters of the Cambodian Buddhist Organization. You can see the living scenes of monks reading and discussing. Wunalong Temple is located near the National Museum on the Donglisa River. Open time is free to enter, usually not open at noon.
In the north of the National Museum, a few minutes'walk away from the National Museum, free of tickets, I arrived at more than 8 o'clock today. There were not many visitors. There was a main temple. I saw several girls of high school students coming in and I followed them. Only then did I find a Lama telling their fortunes. I thought I didn't understand Cambodian and left. When I saw another temple coming in, I also went in. Some Buddha statues were written outside with donations. I donated 10,000 riles. There was also an exhibition hall. There was a big golden bell outside. There was a Chinese-Amitabha Buddha on it. There was also a golden stick that could hit the golden bell. Those who wanted to donate money and those who did not want to donate money could go and see it.
A very suitable temple for free travel is the largest temple in Phnom Penh. Notice that it is not open at noon. This temple is the Buddhist center in Cambodia. It's also quite well located. It's close to Donglisa Lake and near the palace. So it's said that the Buddhist status here is very high. With the Shrita and Buddhist festivals, there are a lot of people on this side.
It is said to be the oldest temple in Phnom Penh. The buildings and Buddhist statues are relatively new. It can be seen that they have been repaired many times. There are monks and pilgrims in the temple, and incense is also very strong. It's cool to sit in the second-floor corridor. You need to take off your shoes when you go to the temple. There are no crowds of tourists, but more temples.
Wunalong Monastery is the largest and oldest monastery in Phnom Penh. It has the largest Buddhist Pagoda in Phnom Penh. In the pagoda there are Buddhist relics welcomed back from Ceylon in 1890. Therefore, many dignitaries like to build ashes pagodas in the monastery so as to store the ashes of their ancestors beside the Buddha and gradually form a group of pagodas.
Wunalong Temple is located not far north of the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh City. It is the largest Buddhist temple in the city and also the Buddhist center of Cambodia. It was built in 1441 and rebuilt in 1979. It accepted numerous impoverished young people from all over Cambodia to study and study Khmer culture, so as to better preserve Khmer culture. It is said that the temple contains the eyebrows of an unknown saint in ancient times, so it has the name of "Unalong" because "Unalong" means "Saint Eyebrow". There are the largest Buddhist pagodas in Phnom Penh and five smaller ones around them. In 1890, the monastery chairman welcomed a handful of Buddha's ashes from Sri Lanka and worshipped them in the pagoda. Later, officials and dignitaries came to bury the ashes here, so that there were many ashes pagodas around them.

The students of Buddhist College are very enthusiastic and love to lead tourists to learn English and Chinese.
A very splendid temple, after going to today, I feel that its magnificence can be comparable to that of the Phnom Penh Palace. It's very big and very elegant, but the only difference is that there are a lot of people in the palace today. There are few people here.
