Presentation Description

YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THIS PRESENTATION HERE: Thank you! Wat Phnom is located on a 27 metres high hill in the centre of Phnom Penh – a site which is said to be the founding place of Phnom Penh. A legend goes that in 1372, Yeah Penh discovered four Buddha statues in a koki tree floating on the Mekong River. She built a hill (“phnom” means hill) and on the top, she placed a small temple to house the statues - and this became Wat Phnom. Later, the surrounding area became known after the hill (Phnom) and its creator (Penh) = Phnom Penh. The current temple was last rebuilt in 1926. The large stupa contains the remains of King Ponhea Yat (1405-1467) who moved the Khmer capital from Angkor to Phnom Penh in the beginning of the 15th century.
