While the building is part of the larger Royal palace, the Silver Pagoda for me was most memorable for the range and quality of the artifacts inside. With some good descriptions this was a cool and sheltered place to take time in, when outside was...More

Part of the Royal Palace Tour. Great costumes, statues, gold, silver and of course Budah. Good to have a break from the hubbub of Phnom Penh.

It's beside the Royal Palace. The pagoda situated among the trees are beautiful. The exhibition in the middle is without air-conditioning. exhibition at the end is cooling with air-conditioning. Just remember to always off you shoes before entering. Been there! Check! Come again, errr, Why?

Dont be taken in by the title 'Silver Pagoda' as there isnt anything silver about it! This pagoda is in the middle of the Royal Palace grounds and looks like any other pagoda except it has a jade buddha inside. You really need a guide...More

This pagoda is inside the Royal Palace area, so it is included in the visit. It is actually nice, the emerald Buddha is beautiful. Also, there are a lot of exhibit objects inside (in a totally disorganized way). I guess taking a guide for the...More

This temple has the whole floor covered in silver plates to provide homage to Buddha... it is a juxtaposition considering BUddha was humble and repelled priveldge....this temple exemplifies the extremes evident in this culturally ancient and rich culture......

The famous Silver Pagoda, originally constructed of wood in 1866, was expanded in 1962 by King Sihanouk who had the floor inlaid with 5,329 solid silver tiles, hence its name.Nice place to visit,must see location

This is a lovely pagoda in the royal palace grounds. There's some beautiful stupas in the grounds and is beautiful. The silver is mostly covered up but there's a small section where you can stand on the silver floor.

You will be going the royal palace if visiting Phnom Penh and this is right opposite so go have a look it's beautiful or a great place to be for sunrise next to the river

You can get in as part of Royal Palace. Be sure to be covered up, no short shorts or sleeveless shirts. They give you a map and you can follow the crowd. Once you get into courtyard area you are free to wander.
1. What time is the operation hour of this place? 2. I read at the website that there will be a fee for camera. So, is it allowed to take photograph in this building? 3. What is the latest entrance fee for this building?

Last time I visited, I did not go on a tour. Instead, I went into the King Palace grounds with a couple of Cambodians and did not pay a fee. The Silver Pagoda is open (except occasionally for cleaning) during the day when... More

Yes the entrance fee is 3 U.S. Dollars. A must visit but you are not allowed to take photos in the silver pagoda.
