  The path to fulfilment
by Sharrie

To get to Wat Phnom one has to climb quite a bit to get to the top on the only hill in Phnom Penh.

The temple was said to be built in 1373 but was later rebuilt many times. It sits on top of the 27 m high hill.
Most people come here to pray for good luck like in any Chinese temples.
When a wish had been granted, they are supposed to return & make offerings to the gods or spirits.
