The Royal Palace (Khmer: ព្រះបរមរាជវាំងនៃព្រះរាជាណាចក្រកម្ពុជា, Preah Barum Reachea Veang Nei Preah Reacheanachak Kampuchea; French: Palais royal de Phnom Penh), in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, is a complex of buildings which serves as the royal residence of the king of Cambodia. Its full name in the Khmer language is Preah Barum Reachea Veang Chaktomuk Serei Mongkol (Khmer: ព្រះបរមរាជវាំងចតុមុខសិរីមង្គល). The Kings of Cambodia have occupied it since it was built in 1860s, with a period of absence when the country came into turmoil during and after the reign of the Khmer Rouge.
One of the few complexes in the Royal Palace open for tourists. Watch the nicely decorated walls and the silver floor which is unique. You will also notice gold, silver and diamonds in this luxury nice pagoda, a must-see in Phnom Penh
Beautiful place - Staff here is exceptional! Great service and very polite and helpful. Now the room is a bit small and furniture are outdated.
Make sure you visit the murals—Very impressive but poorly preserved. Hope some institutions would take care of them as soon as possible.
One of the 2 complexes in royal palace that opens for tourists. Wat Preah Keo Morakat is known as silver pagoda, the full of the precious objects including silver floors, golden status, emerald Buddha with diamonds. It opens from 8:00am to 12:00pm and 2:00pm to 5:00pm. Ticket costs 10$ for the palace.
A MUST-to visit place in Phnom Penh. The Silver Pagoda located inside the Royal Place compound, and the entrance fee also included within the fee of Royal Place. All items that are displayed inside are real such as gold, silver, bronze etc. You have to know that there's a big Buddha statue with weight 90kg of gold surrounding by 2080 daimonds. And why naming the Silver Temple, even no monk inside? Because that place for king to behave the Buddha's. If you look to the ground inside the temple, you will see the real peace of 5329 silver tiles (1.125 kg per tile).
One of the few complexes in the Royal Palace open for tourists. Watch the nicely decorated walls and the silver floor which is unique. These Silver tiles are from Italian origin. You will also notice gold, silver and diamonds in this luxury nice pagoda, a must-see in Phnom Penh. Pity taking pictures is forbidden but understandable.
It is a beautiful place, but $10,- just to enter, where most of the buildings are not allowed to visit, is not really worth the money.
Very big and a nice temple to visit . This temple also known as Silver Temple. The floor of the temple is made of silver. Many Buddha Statutes inside the temple.
today i got the ticket and i paid 10 USDs to see the palace. but I couldn't see the palace, I just saw some temple, the reason why i bought the ticket i want to see the palace. I didn't hear any explain or sign. I think, they are swindler because they were selling tickets even though we didn't see the palace. that's not fair!! i couldn't see number 5 to 11 sites!! I wasted my money
The royal temple. Like a lot of temples, no photos inside, but pretty impressive, and very decorative. Basically the king's temple.
Beautiful palace! Well maintained and easy to see in an hour or two.
