"Wat Phnom" Wat Phnom Tip by pmarshuk

Wat Phnom, Phnom Penh: 53 reviews and 125 photos

 
 

This Wat is built on the hill at the point where Phnom Penh was supposedly founded. The story goes that a lady named Penh found some images of Bhudda floating in the river and in their honour built a temple in the spot now known as Wat Phnom - Phnom in Khmer means hill.
As far as I could see this is probably the only hill in Phnom Penh
