The royal palace in Phnom Penh is one of the must-see sites of Cambodia. These beautiful buildings have been occupied by Cambodia’s royal family since the 1860’s. Only during the brief, but brutal rule of the Khmer Rouge was the palace unoccupied.
The Throne Hall was once used by royal officials. It still gets use today during royal and religious ceremonies.
The Moonlight Pavilion has been used and continues to be used as a stage for Khmer classical dance.
The Royal Palace buildings not only look good from afar, but also up close. The detailed sculptures found under the roof are quite lovely.
The gardens around the buildings are well-maintained and make for great photos in and of themselves.
The Royal Palace is a place you should definitely visit if you are in Phnom Penh. The colorful buildings and gardens make for a great spot for photos.
