Royal Palace

Royal Palace

The ornate roofs of the Royal Palace are the most striking of Phnom Penh’s skyline, constructed in the ornate Khmer style and glittering with gold gilding. Set just back from the riverfront, the palace is the official residence of Cambodia’s king. Part of the same complex is the magnificent Silver Pagoda – within you’ll find priceless Buddhas, exquisite examples of Khmer artistry and a floor covered by 5000 silver tiles, from which the pagoda gets its name. Both are set amongst delightful French-landscaped gardens.
