Independence Monument

A landmark

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

Also known as the Victory Monument, this Vann Molyvann-designed reddish-brown coloured edifice was built in 1958 to celebrate independence from the French and as a memorial to Cambodia's war dead.

Sitting in the centre of Phnom Penh's largest roundabout, the monument is a favourite among tourists and Khmers alike for photographs. The park that runs east towards the river from the monument is a popular spot for Khmer wedding photos -- look for the wedding parties with their golden umbrellas posing in the afternoon light.
