                                                   The Independence Monument

The Independence Monument (Vimean Ekareach) in Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia, was built in 1958. It stands on the intersection of Norodom Boulevard and Sihanouk Boulevard in the centre of the city. It is in the form of a lotus-shaped stupa, of the style seen at the great Khmer temple at Angkor Wat and other Khmer historical sites. The Independence Monument was designed by the influential Cambodian modern architect Vann Molyvann.

During national celebrations, The Independence Monument is the center of activity. A ceremonial flame on the interior pedestal is often lit by a royal or high official on these occasions, and floral tributes line the stairs. Every year, The Independence Monument is visited by foreigners and locals alike

                                                Cambodia's Royal Palace

Cambodia's Royal Palace complex was begun by King Norodom (1834-1904) in 1886, when the capital was moved to Phnom Penh. Most buildings were completed before World War I, with involvement by French administrators and Thai designers and architects. French influence can be seen in the formal gardens which enhance the palace, and there are some European-style buildings on the grounds.

The building shown in this photo is the Throne Hall, which was originally built in wood. The present structure dates from 1919. Imitating the face towers at Angkor, four faces overlook the complex from the main spire high above the roof (closeup), whose eaves are braced by flying celestials.

                                                             Silver Pagoda

Silver Pagoda (or the temple of the Emerald Buddha), formerly a wooden building, was rebuilt in 1962 in concrete and marble. The pagoda is floored with over 5000 silver tiles each weighing 1 kilo. It is famous for its 90 kg solid gold Buddha made in 1907 and an emerald Buddha said to be made of baccarant crystal. Sharing the pagoda are many other interesting artifacts and jewels and was one of the few temples to remain intact during the Khmer Rouge regime. Open daily from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Entrance fee US$ 3 per person. Camera fee US$2. Video fee US$ 5. Photography is allowed in the outside exhibition areas only.

According to legend, grandma Penh or Daun Penh was wealthy widow, which settled on a high land at the west bank of Chrap Chheam River ( Tonle Sap river). At a vast flood season, there were many Koki trees floating to stuck at Daun Penh high land and in the hole of big Koki, there were four bronze and one stone Buddha statues. In 1372 Daun Penh ordered people to pile up earthe at the northeast her house and used Koki trunks to build up on that hill for keeping five Buddha statues, then maned the temple Wat Phnom Daun Penh (Wat Phnom).

Angkor Borei has been continuously inhabited for at least 2500 years and has yielded artifacts dating from the Neolithic period, the Funan period (4th/5th century AD) and Chenla (8th century AD) as well as the later Angkorian period (9th-15th century AD). There are no significant temple ruins at Angkor Borei but there is a very interesting little museum displaying artifacts from the area and providing information on recent archaeological digs.

About 20km from Angkor Borei is the hill of Phnom Da, crowned by an impressive 11th century Angkorian era brick and sandstone Prasat (tower) displaying some carvings in good condition. This structure was probably an upgrade of an previously existing 7th or 8th century structure. The temple was constructed under King Rudravarman and dedicated to Shiva

 Phnom Penh is a surprisingly good little party town, offering a dusk till dawn nightlife and a variety of places from which to choose - dance clubs, sports bars, neighborhood pubs, karaoke, upscale clubs and more.

Bars and clubs are scattered across the town but as the city is fairly compact it’s never more than a five or ten minute ride between places, usually less. And there are several little clusters of bars and nightspots around town allowing you to hop easily from one to the next.

 For Cambodian souvenirs, art, silks, handicrafts and curios, both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap offer an ever growing range and variety of shopping opportunities and products. Traditional Cambodian souvenirs include fine hand-loomed silks, Angkorian and Buddhist themed carvings and statuary, hand-pounded silverwork, colored gems, traditional handicrafts, Cambodian basketry and of course, the most traditional of all Cambodian souvenirs, the krama - a checkered scarf unique to the Khmer people and tourists in Cambodia. The traditional markets, especially Phsar Toul Thom Pong (Russian Market) and Phsar Thmey (Central Market) both offer excellent selections of traditional souvenirs as well as a unique local shopping experience. But there is much more to the Phnom Penh shopping scene these days. Fine boutiques and art galleries offer unique, sophisticated selections of high-quality contemporary Asian art, custom tailored EuroAsian fashions in Khmer silk, home decor and, of particular interest, the artistic works of a new generation of Cambodian artists, coming to the fore after decades of near silence. Several boutiques are Lucky, Pailin Souvenir Shop and others.

This Apsara dance dates back to the 12th century. In the late 20th century Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge almost succeeded in wiping it out for ever. But it survives! Set up 10 years ago, the Apsara Arts Association is located in Thmey district -- west of Phnom Penh. The 130 students at the school range in age from four to 23. A significant number are orphans. The school provides accommodation for them. They practise dance in the morning and study in the afternoon. The photo reportage was carried out in November 2006.
