Yet another Wat. We have seen enough now to last a lifetime. Buddha was in his humble glory, very serene indeed

I like to visit the pagoda when i come to any country. And this pagoda did not disappoint me. You can know more about the Cambodia culture and architecture when you visit here.

Went inside and found it interesting with so many statues of Buddhas and Buddhist Monks. Just a short walk from my hotel along the water front.
