The temple complex covers 81 hectares and is comparable in size to the Imperial Palace in Beijing.

Continue your journey in the Pearl of the Orient Phnom Penh visiting by yourself the dazzling white and gold complex of the Royal Palace and the Silver Pagoda. Feel free to visit the Genocide Museum or venture to the former Tuol Svay Prey High School which the Khmer Rouge set up as prison in May 1976 to detain those accused of opposing the Pol Pot regime.
