Tazai Mountain is one of Cambodia's five major temples. There is a dollar bill at the free entrance to ignore him. It's not a big place to enter directly. It's only two minutes before you take photos. You need to take off your shoes when you enter the temple. Tazai Mountain is the birthplace of Phnom Penh, about 100 meters high. The image of Mrs. Penh on the top of the mountain is one of the symbols of Phnom Penh. Standing on the Tashan Mountains, you can overlook the whole city of Phnom Penh. Now there are many tall buildings in Phnom Penh, and you can't see the whole city anymore. Tazai Mountain is located on the top of the mountain. A Buddhist pagoda about 30 meters high is on the top of the mountain, which is even more magnificent. Under the hill is a small park for citizens to rest. In the small park, there is an exhibition hall, which shows objects and paintings of Cambodian folk customs. If you like, you can buy souvenirs, but the price is more expensive, of course, the quality is better.

Clusters of budding, beautiful lotus.

Personally, one of the most important places I can not miss when I come to Phnom Penh is the Tashan Temple, because it has a direct connection with the origin of the name of Phnom Penh. Tashan legend is a hill built by a mother-in-law named Bian to worship the statue of Buddha floating from the Mekong River. In memory of this mother-in-law, later generations call it Phnom Penh. Phnom is a mountain and Penh is the name of Bian-in-law. So in Cambodian, Phnom Penh should mean Bian-po Mountain. There are many people coming to worship during the Spring Festival and the holidays. There is another small temple beside the hall, which is built by later generations to remember Bian-ma. Inside the temple, the statue of Bian-ma is worshipped. In addition, there is a large ashes pagoda behind the Buddha Hall, which buries the first king of the Angkor Dynasty who moved to Phnom Penh, and his statue on the hillside. Tashan is not very high, so it is wrong to say that people can overlook Phnom Penh on it.
This place is the symbol of Phnom penh city. Daoun Penh was a name of old rich lady who found a big metal of buhda statue and then build a temple and kept in the hill. now they call as Phnom Penh (mount Penh) to remember her contribution and the place become famous.

most important of your visit to Phnom Penh you must know how the Capital of Cambodia is found
Like its name, Tashan Temple is one of the oldest temples in Phnom Penh on a high hill at the north end of Norodom Street. The Temple originated in 1372 and was built here by Mrs. Ben. After that, it was rebuilt several times and restored in 1927 to form its present scale. From the eastern side of the hill to the Dragon King staircase in Shanghai, the main hall is the first one to be seen. In the center of the main hall, golden Buddha statues are worshipped. There are many Buddha statues around. The life of Sakyamuni is painted on the murals. Inside the main hall stands the ashes tower of King Ayat of Penghei. Because of Siam's invasion, King Ayat of Penghei abandoned Angkor and moved the capital to this place around 1434. His ashes are also collected here. In the south, there is a small temple dedicated to the legendary image of Mrs. Ben. Because of people's firm beliefs, incense in the temple has been incense. There are many beggars around the pagoda yard. The public security situation will be very bad after evening. It's better to go before dark.
