The history around this place is interesting and it was lovely to walk around. We were told to look for the big clock so did go for a walk around the lower rim. When you are there you need to see this, doesnt take long.

Probably not the most impressive of the Wats dotting Cambodia. A little interesting for the views- but nothing spectacular. Not too far from river side. So if you have the time and nothing better to do , do a quick tour of Wat Phnom.
