This week my boyfriend and I took a trip to Phnom Penh for visa related stuff. We decided to visit Aeon Mall (wow, that place is HUGE), then stop off at Svay Pope Pagoda. The compound had rubbish scattered everywhere, and a space set up for people (presumably nearby workers) to park their motorbikes for a fee. Apart from those two downsides, it was a beautiful pagoda that has been around since before the Khmer Rouge came into power. I have tried to research online about this pagoda to learn more, however I only came across a few references to it, nothing about the history of it. So here, enjoy the photos I took and imagine the history yourself!
