Wat Phnom, Phnom Penh

Cambodia has an incredibly rich history with some of the most wonderful sites. Today, I wanted to share some of the photos Rheedan took during our visit to Wat Phnom. This temple was founded in 1373 and is still an active and integral part of the city.

Nagas guard the stairs that lead up to the temple.

There are multiple little shrines dotted here and there and everywhere.

Climbing the stairs can be a bit of a challenge in the heat and humidity,
so be sure to drink a lot of water.

The main stupa reaches upward on top of the pagoda.

The scent of incense fills the air

mingling with the sounds of birds.

The inside of the temple is ornate, colourful,
and filled with many statues and frescoes.

Lotus petals fill a bronze bowl.

The easiest way to get to Wat Phnom will be to haggle with a tuk-tuk driver.
