This is a must place for visitors to Phnom Penh. All the intricate architecture and design is to be absorbed and appreciated. A place of important buddhist worship for local cambodians. Must observe dress code

We combined this museum with a trip to the killing fields. The museum used to be a school but was converted into a holding prison. Prisoners were tortured and interrogated here before being sent to the killing fields. When the prison was liberated in 1979, a number of prisoners were found dead in the cells. There are photos of these... More

The temple itself will be like others, beautiful in a oase in the center of the city. It's a quite, not to touristic, place next to the independence monument. On Monday, Thursday and Saturday 6pm you can join a meditation session with the monks. This is free, just go to the temple meditation hall (first floor of the building ahead... More

A pleasant nice site but...... this temple was just a few hundred metres from our hotel so we thought we would visit. And what a surprise. It is a couple of very impressive buildings inside the compound but no access inside the buildings which was disappointing for a supposed UNESCO site.

This Wat is worth a visit definitely. Very good architecture and buildings and statues. Quieter than the other Wats. Not too far from independence monument. Monks are not too happy there though

I went here as I am already At Independent monument and this Wat was very nearby. However it was not superbly unique or special. There are other Wat that is better, so if you have no time or rushing, can give it a miss.

We stayed nearby and walk by it every day but do to the usual hubbub were unable to get any good photographs without tourists. Went on New Year's Day and got great picks of the pagoda and the adjacent cemetery.

Nice to look inside and talk to the local monks who can speak some English. We can learn some knowledge how the Buddhist monks practice their daily life.

The temple sits in a lovely but busy part of the city surrounded by tree lined streets and the stunning Independence monument. The minute you step into the compound the dull roar of the city fades and the temperature drops. Wat Lanka is a lovely pagoda to explore but I'm sceptical of the English meditation sessions held there as when... More

I visited during the day when most was closed up but came again that evening for meditation. Every Monday, Thursday and Saturday they have an open meditation session from 6-7pm. I would highly recommend popping in!
