Wat Preah Prom Rath

Wat Preah Prom Rath

Last weekend we were fortunate enough to have both Saturday and Sunday off, due to Labour Day. Not wanting to stay in bed the WHOLE time watching Netflix, Seyla and I visited Wat Preah Prom Rath after a surprising (and welcomed) rain shower. This is a pagoda I drive past every single day, yet have only been inside a couple of times. Located close to old market, this pagoda is big, beautiful, clean and quiet.

The pagoda is said to have been established 500 years ago by a Monk who landed ashore on a piece of his sinking boat. The buildings, however, are from the 20th century. Entry is free, so it is a place I recommend visiting if you are in Siem Reap!
