Wat Lang Ka

Pretty flowers

Photo of Wat Lang Ka, , Phnom Penh

What we say: 1 star

This wat is of only passing interest to the typical traveller, although it is a popular one for VIP ceremonies of various kinds. You can tell when something VIPish is happening as they'll close the roads in the area, causing complete chaos. Toward the rear of the compound, by the entrance on Pasteur Street, note the beautiful cannonball flowers growing out of the tree trunks which resemble giant Venus flytraps. Khmers are very suspicious of these flowers and allow them to grow only at temples and the Royal Palace. It is believed a broth made from their petals is a helpful tonic for pregnant women.
