What people are saying:

This is the most important site of modern Buddhism in Cambodia. You'll see lots of master monks and monks in training, as well as some tributes to monk leaders that were killed by the Khmer Rouge. It's close to the National Museum.

    I lived in Phnom Penh 2002-2017 and taught English informally at the dormitories. House 7 was renovated but House 45 was a colonial relic. This Wat covers a city block. The monks and students are fri...
