Visit the beautiful Royal Palace

The official residence of King Sihamoni, the Royal Palace is a dazzling showpiece of classic Khmer architecture with its steep tile roofs, gilded halls, and elaborate golden nagas. The definite highlight of the Royal Palace is the striking Silver Pagoda housing a 17th-century Buddha made of crystal, and another made almost entirely of gold and adorned with almost 10,000 diamonds.

The ceremonial buildings of the palace grounds are complimented with lush gardens making the place a tranquil sanctuary from the urban desert of Phnom Penh. Visitors are exercised to dress decently while in the palace premises.
