It was an enjoyable relaxing place to spend an afternoon. The temple is quiet small but the gardens surrounding it ar very nice. Worth a visit if youre in Phnom Penh. more »
Very well kept. An active Buddhist temple with friendly worshippers who always welcome in visitors. We go every time we are in PP and always enjoy seeing the temple and worship. A good handicraft center is also on the property showcasing Cambodian products. WC is a disgrace unfortunately
