Cambodia Snapshots: Silver Pagoda, Phnom Penh’s Royal Palace

This is one stunning structure. The Silver Pagoda (official name – Preah Vihear Preah Keo Morakot and Wat Preah Keo for Khmers), Royal Palace, Kingdom of Cambodia. Snapped this shot from the side view and while the place is not massive nor is it that arresting at first glance, it is undeniably ornate and just beautiful. If you love details like me, you’d fall for this.

Silver Pagoda Phnom Penh

The temple houses gold and jeweled statues and it is also inlaid with about 5000 silver tiles. Photography is not allowed inside though so this is all we get.

    Wow! I never imagined that Cambodia is such a perfect place to visit aside from the scenery, I never see a wonderful place like this.
