Cambodia Snapshots: Throne Hall, Royal Palace Phnom Penh

All Around Cambodia, Cambodia Snapshots, Phnom Penh / Sunday, August 7th, 2011

The Royal Throne Hall. Also called the Preah Tineang Tevea Vinichhay. Used as the audience hall for the King, for diplomatic and official meetings. The interior is superb and very intricate. Too bad, one is not allowed to take photos. So I had to be content with just the facade. A bit of history: The Throne Hall was constructed in wood in 1869-1870 under King Norodom and it was demolished in 1915.

The building you can see in the photo was a reconstruction in 1917 and inaugurated by King Sisowath in 1919.

This is a Cambodia Snapshots feature.
