Situated in the heart of the old town of Angkor Thom, Bayon Temple was constructed by Jayavarman VII at the end of the twelfth century. It is topped by a forty five metre high tower. On the summit there are four sculpture faces of bhodisattava Avalokitesvara. It is unlike most of the other temples; no walls surround the terrain, and the style is Buddhist. In fact, the temple was intended to evoke the form of Mt. Meru - the cosmic mountain at the center of the world in Buddhist cosmology. There are more than 200 large faces carved on the 54 towers.




The Silver Pagoda ( located in Phnom Penh) was constructed in 1892 by King Norodom to house the ashes of the royal family. The name comes from the 5,000 silver tiles each weighing 1 kilo ,that cover the interior floor surface, though nowadays these are protected by rugs. The formal name is the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, or Wat Preah Keo. The Pagoda formerly a wooden building, was rebuilt in 1962 in concrete and marble. It is famous for its 90 kg solid gold Buddha made in 1907 and an emerald Buddha said to be made of baccarant crystal.



Wat Banan was built in the mid of 11th century and the end of 12th century by the king, Ut Tak Yea Tit Tya Varman II (1050-1066) and then was finally built by the king, Jarvarman VII (1181-1219). It is located on the top of approximate 400-meter heighten mountain at Kon Tey 2 commune, Ba Nan District . At the mountain’s valley, there are the pond Ku Teuk and two main natural wells, namely: Bit Meas and Chhung or Chhung Achey.




Ek Phnom located in the North Battambang is an 11th century Angkorian ruin built as a Hindu temple under Suryavarman I. The temple consists of prasats on a platform with some carvings in pretty good condition. Wat Ek Phnom, a modern pagoda, sits next to the ruin.


Wat Nokor also called Nokor Bachey Pagoda (Kampongcham) is an 11th century Mahayana Buddhist shrine made of sandstone and laterite with a large reclining Buddha and numerous alcoves containing Buddha images. An interesting feature of Wat Nokor is that the Angkorean structures have been incorporated amongst modern temple buildings, which have colourful paintings lining the walls and ceiling.





Wat Piphit or Wat Piphitthearam is a modern wat on the outskirts of Battambang. It houses colourful wall paintings depicting the life of Buddha, a host of statues and half a dozen friendly monks. Nearby, a large stupa was guarded by a disused artillery field-gun, allegedly surrounded by landmines.


Wat Phnom was built in 1372 by ‘Penh’ to house the four Buddha statues found on the banks of the Mekong. Located on a man-made hill 27m high in the middle of Phnom Penh, Wat Phnom is a revered place of worship for all Khmers and is the namesake of the capital.


Phnom Oudong (oudong means victorious) dates from the early 7th century and was the old capital of Cambodia (1618 - 1866) before the capital was moved to Phnom Penh. The main attraction in this area today is the Oudong Hill area (Phnom Oudong). It is now the official resting place of the most sacred of Buddha's bones possessed by Cambodia. Originally stored at the monument in front of the railway station in Phnom Penh and later Wat Phnom, the bone has had a new temple built top the mountain and is now the tallest one of three temples that exist there.






Phnom Sampeau is a hill-top temple near Battambang town and is approached by a flight of 700 stairs. The ride to the foot of the hill was quite an interesting one. Up at Phnom Sampeau, there is the newly built stupa.
