About Wat Phnom in Phnom Penh


Wat Phnom is the most important temple in Phnom Penh and the oldest. The temple was founded some time in the late 14th Century by the legendary founder of Phnom Penh who, according to local folklore, was an old lady called Penh who paid for the temple to be built to house some Buddha statues she found floating in the river nearby. The most distinctive feature of the temple is that it is located on top of a small man made hill. The area used to be very prone to flooding and the story is that Lady Penh had the hill constructed to keep the Buddha statues and temple out of the water when flooding occurred.

Wat Phnom was transformed during the 15th Century by King Ponhea Yat, who was the last King of the Khmer Empire. King Ponhea Yat briefly moved the capital of Cambodia to Phnom Penh having been forced to abandon Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat near Siem Reap because of their close proximity to the Kingdom of Siam, with whom the Cambodians were frequently at war with. King Ponhea Yat enlarged the hill, built a new temple and a large stupa for his ashes to be placed inside when he died. The stupa is still there today, although the temple has been rebuilt several times since his death, most recently in 1927. Other additions have been made to the temple since as well, including a range of colourful and ornate shrines relating to Chinese and Vietnamese deities which attract lots of Chinese and Vietnamese visitors. Wat Phnom and it gardens are definitely worth visiting and the entrance fee is a very reasonable $1 USD.
