A few fascinating statues and landmarks can be discovered gracing Phnom Penh's wide and verdant lanes and roundabouts. The pagoda-like Independence Monument commends the country's independence from French colonial rule. The austere Cambodia– Vietnam Friendship Monument has something of a Communist look about it. It recalls the historic bonds and organization together amongst Cambodia and neighboring Vietnam.
The statue of King Father Norodom Sihanouk pays praise to the nation's former king. The park before the Royal Palace has a fascinating brilliant statue of a sacred bird like animal known as Hang. On the waterfront you'll discover a statue of a seventeenth century military pioneer and his helper, both mounted on horseback. Walk around the vivacious city and see what different statues you can reveal!
