After the last two incredibly heavy posts about Cambodia’s Killing Fields and prison/genocide museum, today I just wanted to share with you some images from one of Phnom Penh’s most beautiful Buddhist temples.
Wat Phnom (meaning “temple of the mountains”) is located in central Phnom Penh, perched atop one of the highest points in the city. It’s surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, and is frequented by people coming to pray, monks, and tourists alike. It’s a place to seek solace in a bustling city, to find peace among the chaos.
