Wat Preah Keo Morokat (Silver Pagoda)
Located within the Royal Palace, this is the most famous pagoda in Phnom Penh. It was built in 1962 to replace an earlier wooden temple. The name comes from the 5281 tiles of silver, each weighing a little above one kilogram, that cover the floor. The altar houses a life sized Buddha, made of 90 kilograms of pure gold and covered with 9,584 diamonds, the largest being 25 karats. Flash cameras are prohibited.

It is really fun to go to cambodia. Most of the things are cheap when you know how to talk to people. And you can go to Angkor wat temple the world most famous place that build in the 12 century. It is not last so long because alot of Thai people steal the ancient rock in the wall to sold and Keep in Thailand museum. Thai is very treacherous and cruel. They have a lot of tricks. Please becareful when you go to thailand. they can put you in jail without any reasons. They are racism for foreigner
