Chedi at the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

A chedi inside the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

One of the first things that we did in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, was visit the Royal Palace. The palace was first established in 1866 and many of the buildings here were constructed later, up until the 1960’s, making it all fairly recent compared to the history of the Khmer people. The buildings in the palace are absolutely stunning and extravagant, befitting for a royal residence. This photo is of one of the royal chedis inside the palace walls, located near the Silver Pagoda. This chedi may not be colourful, but the carvings on it are quite exquisite.

    This is so beautiful, exquisite and looks perfect in every aspect! I wonder why it is not there in the world mainstream media alongside Tajmahal and other beautiful buildings?
