Wat Ounalom is located at Sotherearos Blvd, just across the street from Sisowath Quay and close to the Royal Palace. It is beautiful and well worth a visit.

We chanced upon this temple while walking down the Sisowath Quay. Impressive facade. Interesting to find out that it was built in 1943 and is the headquarters and home of the Buddhist order in Cambodia. Stupa with beautiful detail is worth noting.

It is located in the center of Phnom Penh. 15 minutes walk from the Royal Palace and just about 3-5 minutes from the National Museum. The atmosphere there is peaceful and quiet. Some places do not allow visitors to enter.

I was expected too much. But it was not bad, but just not as I thought. The place was under renovation. Nothing really to see.

Nice temple in Phnom Penh, but not exquisit. The rest of the area is worth to explore and take pictures.

You can visit the temples in this complex but be mindful that there are monks that lives here as well. This is one of the holiest and quieter places in Phnom Penh.
